Butler's fowl ordinance amended
Village of Butler— After several months of review, the Butler Village Board has amended an ordinance pertaining to the keeping of farm animals.
At a meeting last week, the board tweaked the ordinance. New language permits property owners in residential areas to keep up to four, rather than two, chickens. Roosters continue to be prohibited within the village.
Butler's municipal code has additional language that remains in tact. There are passages addressing "noisy bird restrictions" and "clean enclosure requirements" that are designed to put further restrictions on chicken keeping.
Prior to taking action at last week's meeting, the Plan Commission and Village Board each held a public hearing. No one spoke for or against increasing the threshold.
