Lakeville City Council Paves Way for Residents to Have Chickens
After years of people asking, homeowners in Lakeville can now have chickens on their property.
According to Sun Thisweek Newspapers, Lakeville’s City Council on July 2 voted to approve a new ordinance that will allow chickens to be kept on residential properties.
The new ordinance allows property owners who want to have chickens on their properties to apply for a one-time administrative permit of $100, and they must comply with the performance standards of the ordinance, the report said.
The ordinance also reportedly states that chickens can’t be allowed to roam freely in any area, they must be kept in coops at night. In addition, the ordinance does not supersede homeowner associations.
