NU City Council Preview 02 Oct 12

The New Ulm City Council will re-visit the issue of Chammy the Horse during it’s regular meeting today (TUE). The council recently approved a new ordinance that allows animals living in the city prior to January 1st of this year to remain after a controversy earlier this year concerning the popular horse and it’s manure. The council will be considering a variance allowing Chammy to stay within the city limits, but will first address several issues, including if the manure is being dealt with properly, if the horse’s fence is being properly maintained, and if the animal is being kept in a humane manner. The meeting begins at 5pm today at New Ulm City Hall. Following the regular meeting the council will continue it’s discussions on the city’s 2013 budget and tax levy as well.
