The council adopted a set of rules and passed the ordinance after 8-6 vote which now permits residents to keep up to 4 hens.
To obtain a permit, residents must submit a plan showing the size and location of the chicken coop to the Health Department along with a $145 pre-inspection fee.
The Health Department will, however, deny the application if there is any objection from the applicant’s neighbor when they are notified.
The applicant, however, can appeal the decision to the Safety & Licensing Committee.
For information on how to obtain a permit contact the Health Department at (920) 832-6429.
