North Judson Town Board Discusses Urban Chicken Farms

North Judson Town Board: Dan Anderson, Wendy Hoppe, Jane Ellen Felchuk, Attorney Cassie Hine and Clerk-Treasurer Connie Miller

The North Judson Town Board discussed urban chicken farms within town limits at their last meeting in July. The police department received complaints about the farms and the Board was going to look into the ordinances to see about prohibiting those types of activities in town.

On Monday, North Judson resident, Sarah Ransom, presented the Board with information concerning urban chicken farms. Ransom’s neighbors were also present at the meeting and they said that Ransom’s farm poses no problems with them. The Board agreed to review the information, but did not make any decision concerning the allowance of the farms within town limits.
