Lander council to discuss chickens plus hunting in town tonight at work session

Should Lander allow chickens in the city limits? Should hunting be banned within the city? Those two controversial items will be up for discussion tonight's work session starting at 7 p.m. at city hall. Presently, the city does not have an ordinance dealing with chickens. Those who already have chickens within the city limits obviously want to keep them, and there are some residents opposed to chickens. The council will discuss the pros and cons of establishing an ordinance one way or other at tonight's meeting. The councilors will also continue discussion on whether hunting should be banned in the city. The topic generated many opinions when it was brought before the council earlier this month and a decision was made to put the ordinance on hold for further study. Other items to be discussed at the work session include the Fire Department's ISO rating and staff and council updates. *Feature Photo: Lander City Hall (Pitchengine Communities) * #county10 #news
