Haakon Co. Commissioners field complaints from county residents

At the Haakon County Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, September 6th, Connie Schlim spoke on behalf of neighbors of the feedlot east of the sale barn concerning the flies and the odor. Joining her were other residents from that area and several City of Philip residents. Schlim showed the commissioners pictures of her home and the surrounding area. She also explained that she had been advised not to water anything with water from their wells due to the high levels of nitrates in the water. Several other people in attendance confirmed and added to Schlim’s statements concerning the smell in the area and in the town of Philip. The group was informed that the county has no zoning laws. This prevents the commissioners from legally doing anything about the situation. Commissioner Lincoln Smith stated that he would have a conversation with the feedlot operator and States Attorney Marty Jackley advised the group to contact the DENR.
