The first reading of a draft ordinance in Kewaunee County regarding manure application has been taken off the agenda before Tuesday’s board meeting. The draft ordinance would require farmers to use low-pressure methods when spreading liquid manure in contrast to spraying. Despite being in committee for months, Kewaunee County Board chairperson Robert Weidner believes the measure needs more time.
The Kewaunee County Board, which will meet at 6 p.m. at the Administrative Center in Kewaunee, will also discuss resolutions regarding its support for updated NR-151 rules regarding areas with karst bedrock, approving the landfill closing engineering agreement, and recommending funding for a Total Maximum Daily Load study of its impaired waterways.
