Plover to hold listening session on poultry ordinance
For the City Times
The village of Plover is holding a listening session to gather input from residents on the keeping of chickens in residential areas.
The listening session is scheduled as part of a regularly scheduled village board meeting on May 19 at 6 p.m. at the Village of Plover Municipal Center, 2400 Post Rd., Plover.
Current village ordinances prohibit the keeping of poultry and other livestock in residential areas.
“It is important that we hear from Village residents regarding this issue in order for the Village Board to make an informed decision and one that the majority of residents agree with,” said Plover Village President Tom Davies.
“Village residents are invited to comment on an amendment to allow the keeping of chickens in the village of Plover. Persons wishing to comment should state their name, address, whether they are for or against an ordinance to allow chickens, and their reasons for their position,” a release from the village stated.
“Due to the large number of people expected to attend the Listening Session, individual comments will be limited to three minutes.”
Village residents may also submit written comments for consideration to Community Development Manager Steve Kunst by May 19 at [email protected] or P.O. Box 37, Plover, WI, 54467.
“Please note that the Village Board will not discuss action on an ordinance at this meeting. A second meeting will be held at a later date after all comments are compiled and after village staff has had a chance to prepare responses to any specific concerns or suggestions that are brought forward at the listening session,” the release added.
