Maplewood City Council on Tuesday is set to for the final vote to on an bill that would strengthen the city’s current ordinance (Chapter 10-Animals and Fowl, Section 10-2) on animals that are prohibited.
The current law prohibits cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, pigeons, poultry (except as allowed in section 10-3), rabbits or other rodents.
The new ordinance would prohibit horses, too. A resident had requested to keep a horse; that’s what prompted the change.
Residents are allowed to keep up to six chickens or ducks.
The council is also set to vote on various zoning-related issues. See the meeting notes.
