Chicken ordinance may get four year extension

CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WLNS) – People in Charlotte may be able to keep their feathered friends for longer than they thought.

The ordinance allowing people on rural lots in the city to keep chickens was set to expire next month.

The city council will vote on an extension on Monday.

The ordinance allowing residential lots to keep chickens was originally passed in 2012 and would have lasted 4 years.

The city council is reviewing an amendment to extend it by another 4 years.

Additionally changes could be made to the permit and notification process and chicken permits may remain valid for two years instead of one.

The council will take public input before voting.
