SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Two members of the Loess Hills Alliance board have turned in their resignation after State Senator Bill Anderson questioned the legality of their place on the board.
Susanne Hickey of Omaha, Nebraska and Doug Weber of Rock Port, Missouri, were both voting members on the board, which is currently considering a National Reserve designation, potentially landing them more federal grants.
Landowners in the area say they're concerned their rights to farm that land will be restricted.
Senator Anderson said he thinks those concerns are legitimate.
He says protecting the Loess Hills is important, but so is protecting the landowners.
"You can drive through there instead of the interstate, and it's beautiful, it's absolutely beautiful. And I understand why we're protecting it. At the same time, we have to look out for the landowner rights, as well. There are a lot of concerns out there, and I just wanted to make sure that those voices were heard and represented," Sen. Bill Anderson, (R) Sioux City.
Anderson told KTIV that Susanne Hickey, the former board member from Omaha, was one of the driving forces behind a possible National Reserve designation.
