Manure site causing issues

TITONKA, Iowa –  It’s a smelly situation and a local community is reacting.  Some north Iowa land is being used as a manure dump and folks are not happy.

This is taking place just outside the TItonka city limits  We’re told by Kossuth County Supervisor Roger Tjarks, that the company dumping manure there is Field Nutrients LLC.  Those living nearby say they can hardly handle the smell and flies that come along with the situation.  Now, county leaders are working hard on trying to get the site gone.

“Well, we don’t want anybody living with this stench. You can smell it, it’s not pleasant.  Anytime the wind blows, its going to effect people wherever they are down wind,” said Tjarks.

He tells us the site won’t be cleaned up until the fall.

We contacted those at Field Nutrients LLC but there was no return call.
