Mexico Looking at Revising Chicken Ordinance

The city of Mexico is taking a look at possibly revising the rules for chickens within city limits. City Manager Bruce Slagle says the city currently allows ten chickens in an enclosure, on a property at least an acre in size, and it must be at least 200 feet from a neighboring property.

The city council looked at other cities’ ordinances at a work session Monday night. Slagle says a few residents have a big interest in this.

The Mexico Planning and Zoning Commission will consider revisions, before bringing the subject back to the council within a month or two.
