A motion to allow residents of the City of New Ulm to raise chickens within the city limits will be discussed by the New Ulm City Council this (TUE) evening. The motion to amend the city code will likely see several provisions, such as limiting the number of chickens on a property to 6 hens and not allowing roosters. The size of the chicken coop that would be allowed, as well as sanitation requirements and the cost for a chicken permit will also likely be discussed. The council is also scheduled to approve the plans and specifications and set a bid-opening date for nearly $3-million in state aid road improvement projects this year. The New Ulm City Council meeting starts at 5pm today in the city hall council chambers.
