STONINGTON–The Village of Stonington met at the village hall Monday night to discuss changing the village ordinance on allowing chickens.
Two private citizens came to the Village Board meeting to ask board members to revise an ordinance to allow chickens in city limits.
The two citizens said they had previously raised some chickens while their son was in FFA. They said they would like to raise roughly 12 chickens for fresh eggs.
Currently, chickens are not allowed within city limits unless an individual needs chickens for 4H, FFA, or an agricultural study.
The verbiage of the ordinance will be discussed and reviewed at the next Village Board meeting.
Changes made to ordinances in Chapter 11 sections 11.2007 E and 11.302 was approved.
The changes to the sections in Chapter 11 includes adding details to the verbiage and fines for those who violate the ordinance.
Also approved on the agenda was the installation of a gas valve and the intergovernmental agreement between the Village of Stonington and the Stonington Community Center.
Stonington’s next city hall meetinging will be held on January 3, at 7 p.m in the village hall.
