Council Takes No Action On Chickens

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – At Thursday night’s Terre Haute City Council meeting no action was taken on the so-called chicken ordinance.

It was the first reading for a new general ordinance that would allow chickens to be kept within the city limits of Terre Haute. A special committee was put together to draw up the proposed ordinance.

Thursday, many people stood in front of the council and gave their opinions on the ordinance. Most people were for the idea.

The ordinance is about five pages long and explains all of the rules and regulations for having chickens in the city limit. You can find the full ordinance here.

Nothing was voted on Thursday, the ordinance will be on the city council agenda again next week at their regularly scheduled meeting.
