A new Confined Feeding Operation (CAFO) is being proposed for the far NE corner of Steuben County for 8,000 head of calves. The closest lakes to this CAFO are Little Long Lake and Clear Lake. The Steuben County Board of Zoning Appeals has set a Public Hearing for Monday evening, January 23, 2023 at 317 S Wayne St in the Auditorium. Although this CAFO should not likely affect Crooked Lake as did the last CAFO proposal, residents of the lakes now in harm's way are asking for your help in opposition. You can attend the meeting in person as a show of support and you can put a brief note together in writing and mail to Steuben County Plan Commission, Attn: BZA-CAFO Schmuckers, 317 S Wayne St, Ste 3H, Angola 46703.
