Jackson County Board of Zoning Appeals is slated to consider a request from a Brownstown family for an 8,000-head confined animal feeding operation today.

The board, however, is reduced from five members to four for that hearing because applicant James Lucas is a member of the board and has recused himself and his replacement has not been named by county commissioners.

A second board member, Francis Elliott, also has recused himself. He will be replaced by plan commission member Bill Burnside of Freetown. Elliott has often recused himself from matters involving such hog operations because of his work with the Jackson-Jennings Co-op board of directors.
