A lawsuit has been filed against the Worth County Board of Supervisors saying the recently passed ordinance governing health regulations at livestock lots violates state law. The Worth County Farm Bureau, the Worth County Friends of Agriculture and six individuals filed the suit last week in Worth County District Court. The ordinance was passed by the supervisors last month, establishing regulations for the maximum amount of toxic gas emissions beyond an owner’s property, and establishing worker safety rules. The suit seeks a judgement to strike down the ordinance. A hearing has been set for August 27th to determine if the petition was filed within the required thirty days from the date the ordinance was enacted.
