The Iron County Board of Supervisors has voted to remove the Lac Courte Oreilles Harvest Camp in the Penokee Hills.

The unanimous decision Thursday night asks the sheriff to remove the camp from the proposed mine site of Gogebic Taconite.

The board says the camp has been in direct violation of a county ordinance that limits camping on county property to 14 days.

After the notice, the camp-- which opened about a year ago-- has six business days to leave.
