Commissioners deny slaughterhouse zoning
Placeholder Image
A family that has spent more than $50,000 on equipment in preparation of opening a butchery and slaughterhouse on the east side of the county found out last week that their request to rezone their property would not be approved. Dawson County Commissioners on Thursday unanimously voted against the rezoning of 1.08 acres on Harmony Church Road. The county's planning commission, which makes recommendations on zoning issues to the board, also voted to deny the request a month earlier.
