The council will revisit the location of the Precinct 8 polling place at its July 14 meeting. (courtesy of New Brighton)

New Brighton orders ban on fowl

In the minutes before New Brighton's May 12 city council meeting, residents packed City Hall hoping to have a chance to speak at a public hearing for or against a proposed ordinance that would regulate raising chickens in the city. The meeting turned on its heel when Mayor Dave Jacobsen proposed staff draft a ban on all fowl in the city, which was approved with a 3-2 vote. The council will vote on the ban May 26.
