Poultry ordinance on the table
The meeting, which is open to the public, will begin at 6 p.m. Monday in the lower level meeting room of the Weyauwega Public Library.
The city's current ordinance does not allow residents to have farm animals.
On Monday, July 23, resident Melissa Kepler asked the Common Council if it would consider changing the ordinance so that those who live in the city can have poultry.
"I know a lot of kids who would like to show at the fair, but they can't because they don't live out of town," she said.
Kepler said Weyauwega is an agricultural community with an FFA chapter at the high school and several 4-H clubs.
She said allowing residents to have poultry would be an educational tool and also a way for people to have homegrown food.
Kepler also noted that the city of Waupaca changed its ordinance severalyears ago and allows residents to have chickens and that the topic is also being discussed in the cities of Appleton and Neenah.
