Posted at 6:32 PM, Apr 06, 2018

Washington County Planning Commission members are recommending the construction of a few chicken facilities in the county.

A meeting lasted through the night Thursday and into Friday morning.

Commissioners ultimately backed the construction of four of the six proposed facilities.

Each of the them can house 200,000 chickens, to be used by Costco and its processing plant in Fremont, slated to open next year.
