Black Jack Residents Cried Fowl, New Ordinance Will Allow Chicken
The City of Black Jack City Council recently passed Ordinance #1045, which allows residents to keep fowl on their property pursuant to certain regulations. The Mayor and City Council worked with the residents to amend a 10- year-old ordinance.
The new ordinance will grandfather current chicken owners as long as they apply for a permit before March 1, 2013. There are also stipulations in the new ordinance which include a maximum of 6 chickens, one-acre minimum lot size, and the issuance of only 10 permits within the City.
