Secretary Northey to hold Public Meetings in Buena Vista, Calhoun, and Sac Counties

Posted on January 15, 2015 at 3:10 PM by Iowa Corn

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey announced he will be visiting the three Northwest Iowa counties subject of a potential lawsuit by Des Moines Water Works on Tuesday, Jan. 20 and Wednesday, Jan. 21.  During the visits Northey will visit with community leaders and highlight the significant investment made by farmers in these counties to protect water quality.

“Iowa farmers have invested millions of dollars of their own money to help improve water quality.  We need to build on this momentum and work together.  Sensationalized rhetoric and threats of litigation are not the answer to help us achieve our joint goals of improved water quality in Iowa,” Northey said.

Details of Northey’s visits include:

Tues., Jan. 20, 2015 - Calhoun County
Where: Calhoun County Expo Building, 400 High St., Rockwell City
Time: 2:00 p.m.

Tues., Jan. 20, 2015 - Sac County
Where: Sac County Conservation Center, 2970 280th St., Sac City
Time: 4:00 p.m.

Wed., Jan. 21, 2015 - Buena Vista County
Where: King’s Pointe Resort, 1520 East Lakeshore Dr., Storm Lake
Time: 8:00 a.m.

Northey, a corn and soybean farmer from Spirit Lake, is serving his third term as Secretary of Agriculture. His priorities as Secretary of Agriculture are promoting the use of science and new technologies to better care for our air, soil and water, and reaching out to tell the story of Iowa agriculture.
