A proposed hog barn operation northeast of Gretna was the focus of attention this week.
An information meeting on the project was held in Altona to bring both proponents and opponents together.
R.M. of Rhineland Reeve John Falk says the meeting helped open the lines of communication.
Falk says there was a lot of discussion and gave both sides the opportunity to voice their opinions.
The proposed hog barn would accommodate about 1600 sows.
The R.M. of Rhineland has slated a conditional use hearing on the project for September 27th.
