The New Ulm City Council will take up the issue of a horse being forced to leave it’s long-time home in the city during it’s meeting this (TUE) evening. Charles and Roberta Hintz are asking that their horse “Chammy” be allowed to continue to reside on their property on South Payne Street after the city recently informed them that the horse would have to be removed because city codes were violated. Numerous New Ulm residents have signed a petition asking that Chammy be allowed to stay. In other business this evening, the Council is scheduled to approve the plans and specifications for the $2-million Minnesota River Flood Levee Project as well as a Highway 14 Detour Agreement with Brown County concerning the construction of a roundabout for a new Menards store being constructed on the west end of town. An informational session on the 2013 New Ulm budget will take place following this evening’s city council meeting, which begins at 5pm at New Ulm City Hall.
