Fight Continues For Millsboro Residents Over New Chicken Plant

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - The battle continues for some Millsboro residents, fighting plans for a new chicken plant in their community.

The group, "Protecting Our Indian River," attended a town hall meeting with Governor Markell last week to voice their concerns, but they say they didn't gain much traction in the meeting. Their main concern is what Allen Harim Foods will do to the old Vlassic pickle plant property, which they claim is already contaminated.

Cindy Wilton, a member of "Protecting Our Indian River," says Erin Brockovich's consulting team met amongst themselves the weekend, and they're hoping the next step, is to bring that team to Millsboro.

Allen Harim received a "special use exemption" from the Sussex County Board of Adjustments last month. Over the next several months, they we will be submitting their plans to the various state agencies to obtain final approval of the permits which are legally required for the facility to begin operations. Their plan once all the permits have been approved is to begin operations in late 2015 or early 2016.
