(ANGOLA) - The next stop in a controversy over a proposed 4,800 hog Confined Animal Feeding Operation near 600 West and 200 North is a state mediation session. Attorney John Schwarz who is representing Keith Werner of K and D Contract Pork says the Indiana Office of Environmental Affairs have told parties on both sides of the issue to go to mediation after opponents filed an appeal about a permit that was granted by the Indiana Department of Enviromental Management almost two months ago. Werner withdrew a petition for a special exception at the Steuben County Plan Office last Friday so his request will not come up before the Steuben County Plan Commission or before the Steuben County Board of Zoning Appeals in April as previously scheduled. Werner can re-file the petition at a later time. The proposed C.A.F.O. has caused a firestorm of controversy. Nearby lake residents have raised numerous environmental concerns. They were also worried the proposed CAFO would lower property values. The land is zoned agricultural but a special exception was needed from the county because of the size of the proposed operation.
