A controversal four-thousand head hog confinement will not be built near Lake OkobojiThe Dickinson County Attorney says a tentative deal has been reached between Dutch Creek Custom Farms, the citizens-group “Save Dickinson County’s Environment” and Dickinson County. The County will pay Dutch Creek 27-thousand-five-hundred dollars and the citizens group will fork out another 25-thousand to Dutch Creek, and the company will then withdraw its request for a state construction permit. In addition, Dutch Creek will turn over its five-acre tract of land to Dickinson County. The parties have agreed to drop all lawsuits regarding the project, and Dutch Creek has agreed never to build a livestock operation in Dickinson County. The deal must be approved by the Dickinson County Board of Supervisors on March 4th.
