The proposed slaughterhouse coming to Great Falls has caused quite the stir over the past several months. This time it's was about who can serve on the Cascade County zoning board of adjustments.
County commissioners voted two to one to re-open the seat after residents complained of the previous stipulations. Before if you wanted to serve on the seat you could not live with a seven-mile radius from the proposed slaughterhouse and have also made no public comment on the hotly contested issue. One local resident said the previous restrictions to the board application were unconstitutional and infringed on their rights.
Commissioners said current applicants must re-apply for the vacant seat.
