“We got beat on the chicken ordinance,” said Steve Bench, the city’s zoning and building inspector. “So we have removed all the fees and are just requiring a name and address (on the application).”
This allows residents to have chickens, without the fees. However, people are required to fill out an application so the police department knows where chickens are if they stray.
The ordinance also amends the Title 1 Zoning Code, changing the definition chapter, off-street parking regulations, landscaping buffering and fencing regulations, supplementary regulations, as well as sign permits.
