Council approves zone changes
Leader Assistant Editor
The Tremonton City Council discussed and approved changes made by the Planning Commission to the City’s zoning, subdivision and revised ordinances.
Planning Commission Zoning Administrator Steve Bench informed the council on which changes had been made to the zoning, subdivision and revised ordinances.
After discussing definitions associated with the agriculture industry and businesses, Bench said the Planning Commission also added that rendering and animal byproducts for human or non-human consumption would be prohibited in Tremonton.
Councilmember Byron Wood then proposed adding slaughter plants processing 50 or more animals in a 24-hour period, should not be allowed within city limits.
Councilman Lyle Holmgren replied, “If it is not commercial, you will not be dealing with 100 in a day. I guess I just don’t want us to, just because we are opposed to a hog slaughtering plant, write something in and somewhere down the road it comes back to bite you a little bit.”
