Graves County hog ordinance passes first reading

We know the details of a new hog farm ordinance in Graves County, Kentucky. Judge Executive Jesse Perry says the fiscal court passed the first reading of the ordinance Monday.

It requires new hog farms to be one mile away from a town, be at least 2,000 feet away from any barn and building, and have a $1 million liability insurance.

Also under the ordinance, the Kentucky Environmental Protection Agency would be responsible for any cleanup —not the county fiscal court.
