A public meeting was held Tuesday concerning the proposed Hillandale Egg Farms.
More than 50 showed up at the Huber Opera House and Civic Center at Hicksville to voice their concerns and get answers.
Hillandale Farms is gathering the necessary permits from the state. The $85 Million operation will be on the corner of Rosedale Road and Ohio 18 in Hicksville, and it’s expected to employ over 100. Plans eventually call for four million hens, laying 250,000 dozen eggs a day.
Pending receipt of permits, construction is expected to begin in late May or early June.
