Leadership representatives from Johnson County Community Health Services (JCCHS) and the Johnson County Commissioners discussed and established common ground regarding concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO). The county commissioners will decide action by April of 2020.
“We are happy that we are able to find common ground with the commissioners, agricultural partners and other stakeholders that will ultimately lead to all parties fulfilling their respective missions for our communities.” said Anthony Arton, administrator for JCCHS. “The county commissioners will take up this issue in collaboration with other local stakeholders to develop regulation that benefits our communities.”
At this time JCCHS will defer all questions, inquires, and subsequent action regarding CAFOs to the county commissioners.
Johnson County Community Health Services provides Public Health, Home Health, and WIC programs to prevent illness, promote health, and protect the communities we serve. JCCHS is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
