The Seymour City Council is considering a change to a proposed ban on livestock in city limits that would allow residents to keep up to six chickens on their property.
Councilman John Reinhart introduced a new version Monday of Ordinance 20. Council Bill 33 would still prohibit residents from having roosters and other livestock and fowl but makes it legal to have hens.
After listening to the pleas of several residents, the council voted 6-1 to table the issue until the June 23 meeting, so members and the public have more time to study the changes.
