Despite a plan to cut 9.5 jobs in its agency, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources would like to shift four positions to oversee factory farms in the state. The proposed move for the 2017-2019 budget cycle would allow more people to review permits and monitor compliance. Kewaunee County Groundwater Task Force Chairperson Lee Luft says this is another step in the right direction for a state that has seen concentrated animal feeding operations grow to 285 and for an area that has experienced the largest growth in herd count.
Luft says adequate staffing at the DNR, specifically in the departments concerning CAFOs, was one of the concerns brought up during the workgroup meetings held in Kewaunee County. Budget requests for the DNR and other state agencies were released on Friday.
