Johnson Co. considering exempting greenhouses from building code

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Amish farmers could soon get some help from Johnson County supervisors to grow and sell more crops.

The county is considering changing the rules so greenhouses are exempt from building codes.

Farms in Johnson County are already exempt if it's more than 40 acres.

Amish farms are traditionally more than 40 acres, but are getting smaller with increasing land prices.
