One northwest Iowa town is hoping to persuade a feed company that generates a foul odor at its plant to relocate.

The Sioux City Journal reports Sibley, Iowa, has issued nearly $40,000 in fines against Iowa Drying and Processing in the past couple years because of the smell.

A disagreement over who might pay to upgrade the plant to better control odors has wound up in court, and the plant is now listed for sale for $5.5 million.

The company has operated in Sibley since 2013 at a location near downtown.

Local businessman Wade Ellerbroek says he has seen people walking down the street and covering their noses. He says the odor has definitely hurt business in town.
