(JACKSON CO.) - A moratorium banning anyone from building a concentrated animal feeding operation in Jackson County has been extended more than three months.

The Seymour Tribune reported the commissioners voted 2-1 on Tuesday to extend the ban until June 15. Commissioner Tom Joray voted against the ban, as he did when it was first enacted.

Commissioner Matt Reedy said he wants to see what happens at the state level before making a decision about lifting the moratorium. Commissioner Jerry Hounshel, who joined Reedy in voting to extend the moratorium, said it can't be left in place too much longer.
