Not in every pot yet

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council decided to move the urban-chicken initiative off its agenda at its first council meeting of the year.

Last year, the council looked into amending the zoning code to allow hens and roosters to be housed in residential areas after receiving a petition from city residents.

Only two of the seven councilors were interested in pursuing the issue.

Mayor Matt Hayek said there isn’t sufficient interest in the issue to continue work on it. Though it was eliminated from the current agenda, that doesn’t mean the topic can’t ever appear on the agenda again.

Hayek also said the Iowa City community offers organic poultry through local food stores, farmers’ markets, and time-share local farms.
