Commissioners table permit, approve agreement on Cedar Rapids bridge

Boone County Commissioners again tabled action Monday on a conditional use permit application by MSJM Properties, LLC, for a hog confinement building northwest of Albion.
The building had been partially completed before a conditional use permit or construction permit were issued, but construction was ordered stopped in mid-October because permits had not been issued.
