Supervisors revisit issues on Rembrandt Enterprises

Sunday, September 24, 2000

The Buena Vista County Supervisors continue to debate methods of potential county control for the controversial $35 million egg-breaking plant already under construction near Rembrandt.

On Tuesday morning, supervisors plan to discuss the possibility of having their county attorney request a formal opinion from the Attorney General on whether the egg facility can be considered an industry rather than an agricultural land use, and if so, whether it can be subjected to the county's zoning ordinance powers.

The discussion comes after the announcement this week that the Department of Natural Resources has approved the necessary construction permits for the facility, which proposes to house about four million layer birds in 30 buildings. The supervisors' agenda calls for discussion and potential responses on the DNR decision. The meeting is open to the public in the courthouse chambers. Discussion on the Rembrandt Enterprises project begins at 10:30 Tuesday.
