Livestock ordinance clears first hurdle despite opposition

Seymour resident Matt Beem found out this week he's not the only one who wants to be able to keep chickens within city limits.

Nearly a dozen people spoke at Tuesday night's city council meeting against a proposed ordinance that would ban residents from having chickens or other types of livestock and fowl inside the city.

That ordinance passed a first reading on a 5-2 vote, with council members Danny Sloan and Jennifer Siefker casting the dissenting votes. It will come for a final vote at the June 9 meeting.
