Harmony City Council approves exception for new meat processing and packaging plant


Fri, Nov 13th, 2009
Posted in Government

Michael Aggen recently attended a Planning and Zoning meeting for the meat processing/packing plant he is planning on building in Harmony. The building is going up in the Industrial Park in the lot south of Torgerson's Auto. A special exception is needed for the type of business he is planning, and P&Z recommended the council approve the exception.

Aggen showed the council the plans for the building. He said he has been working with consultants on the design, and there may be a fence around the perimeter of the building. There will be a refrigerated section, as well as retail for selling meat.

City Administrator Jerome Illg said the only challenge is getting access to the building, as right now the only access is from the township road. He added they will not have to create a separate TIF district, as it can piggyback with the Antique Mall.

According to Aggen, the weather has been an issue for starting things this fall, but after the spring thaw they will pour the foundation. He hopes to be done three to four months after that.

Illg said the EDA is excited about the project, and the community is as well. The council approved the Planning and Zoning special exception.

Historical Society Project

Marilyn Trouten from the Harmony Historical Society informed the council of a project they are planning at the Visitor's Center. The Historical Society is applying for a grant that would allow them to make some renovations to a room that was once the senior citizen's room.

Trouten explained that the state has $22 million for Cultural Heritage Preservation. There are different grants they can apply for twice a year, and the one they are trying for is $7,000. This money will give them the chance to proceed with some electrical upgrades and work needed to the ceiling.

"The lights aren't good for displays," said Trouten. She added there has been some damage to prints from the fluorescent lights. They would like to install track lighting with LED lights. They would also like to have the ceiling tiles replaced, as there is some water damage from the roof leaking.

Since the room belongs to the city, Trouten wanted to let the council know what they are planning for it. She encouraged them to stop by and see the plans.

Illg said it might help if they come up with some sort of lease for that room. Trouten wasn't sure if that was necessary.
