Manure digester plans to reach Lincoln Board

The Town of Lincoln Board could approve the plans for a renewable energy plant Kinnard Farms in Casco as soon as Tuesday night. The town’s plan commission has also already recommended the conditional use permit for its livestock siting ordinance be approved and it is likely it will give the thumbs up for Kinnard Farms to install four manure digesters and a gas compression plant. Similar to a project being done at Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy in Kewaunee, Kinnard Farms is working with DTE Energy to capture the methane to be used for lucrative alternative fuel markets in California. Plan Commission Chairperson Mick Sagrillo says the town’s residents are primarily concerned about a couple things when it comes to the proposed plant.

The plan commission held three public hearings in past weeks ahead of Tuesday’s meeting at the Lincoln Town Hall at 6 p.m. The Lincoln Town Board will convene immediately following the conclusion of the plan commission meeting.
