Last week The Lincoln County South Dakota Planning and Zoning Board approved a permit for a 4,250 head dairy. County Commission Chairman David Gillespie says following state review of the permit, the dairy can go forward. He says if the zoning commission decision is appealed it comes before his board.
He says if the matter comes before the Lincoln County Commission he will vote for approval for the dairy’s permit.
Gillespie says dairy opponents outlined their objections to the Planning and Zoning Commission which were heard and answered.
He says the dairy operators have a good operation and want to be good neighbors and also would provide 30 jobs which would help economic development in the county.
