Council to consider animal-related zoning changes

Columbus City Council will be considering final changes to zoning ordinances dealing with how to handle animals in the city limits.

Last year, the city passed new ordinances putting limits on how many chickens and other sorts of livestock residents could keep in city limits. The county also adopted new rules on confined animal feeding operations.

The city is now adjusting its zoning ordinances to line up with those new rules. They will be considering the final approval of those changes tomorrow night at the city Council meeting. That meeting is at 6 p.m. tomorrow at Columbus City Hall and it is open to the public if you would like to attend.
