Annexation of Farmers Co-op begins

Lindsay Village Board approves first reading of ordinance

The Lindsay Village Board of Trustees took the first step toward annexing Farmers Cooperative First Addition. The board held two public hearings at part of its Aug. 5 regular meeting, approving the ordinance on the plat and deed of dedication of the land and to include the land within the corporate limits of the Village of Lindsay. Farmers Co-op is seeking annexation to have its infrastructure upgraded as it moves forward with expansion plans. The board approved the first reading of the ordinance. The second and third readings will be during the September and October board meetings, respectfully, before it can vote on it. The Co-op is building a new fertilizer plant next to the feed mill. The current anhydrous plant in town will be moved and it will add another anhydrous storage tank. It is hoped the project will be done over the winter. Next spring the Co-op will start construction on a 1 million gallon liquid fertilizer tank. Part of the next phase is a dry fertilizer plant, along with a new chemical and fertilizer warehouse and office. The Co-op needs a water line that carries a larger capacity. It now operates with a 2.5-inch water line from the city (the Coop does use city water), and if annexed, the city will need to provide a 6 inch water line. The expansion is needed to update the facilities because farmers need bigger and faster facilities.
