WAHOO – After nearly four hours of testimony from the applicants, opponents and proponents, the request to build a 12-barn chicken farm near Morse Bluff was tabled by the Saunders County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

Bruce and Amy Williams have applied to build a large poultry confined animal feeding operation in Morse Bluff Township.

The supervisors decided do more homework on the issue and write up a list of possible conditions for the permit.

“We all have an idea, after hearing the testimony, of what’s important to us,” said District 1 Supervisor Dave Lutton.

The supervisors will discuss their possible conditions at the Oct. 1 meeting, which begins at 9 a.m. in the supervisors room at the Saunders County Courthouse.
