(Neb. & Wyo.)- Wyo. Company Outlines Plan To Buy Scottsbluff Land

     SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - Scottsbluff city leaders are considering a proposal to build a meatpacking plant in the western Nebraska city.
     During a City Council meeting Monday, Keith DeHaan with Future Food Energy LLC outlined the company's proposal to buy 43 acres of city land.
     The company has already signed a letter of intent to buy the property in the Immigrant Trails Subdivision along state Highway 26. The company is now hoping the city will approve the sale, with Future Food Energy offering $10,000 per acre.
     The Wyoming-based company is seeking to construct a 358,000-square-foot plant that would initially employ 250 to 400 workers to process 300,000 to 375,000 cattle per year.
     The facility would use reclaimed heat in a process that DeHaan says eliminates the odor commonly associated with meat-packing facilities.
