Chicken Apps Get First Approval
It's happened with little fanfare. After months of debate over whether people In La Crosse could keep chickens in their backyards, the first two applicants have come before the city council seeking permission for just that. One fellow on Sunset Lane and a family on Farnam street are hoping to get permits to have up to five hens in their yards. First hurdle cleared last night. Both applicants received quick approval from one city council committee. Two more yes votes will be all they need.
