Two proposed ordinances for Kewaunee County are making their way through committee before being discussed at the board level. The ordinances would require manure haulers to be certified, have electronic readers keeping track of spread manure, and use low-pressure methods to put nutrients on the fields. Don Niles of Peninsula Pride Farms says the ordinance regarding the low-pressure manure spreading is a great idea.
Lynn Utesch from Kewaunee CARES also says it is a good idea, but it needs to be done correctly.
After being discussed during Tuesday’s Land and Water Conservation meeting, the two proposed ordinances are up for discussion during the Board of Health’s meeting on June 19. The measures will go before the full county board later this summer.
