MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — The City of Mandan is considering allowing residents to raise chickens.
City Planner John Van Dyke says he’s received several requests from citizens who want to collect fresh eggs from their backyards. The city commission advanced an ordinance Tuesday night that would allow up to four chickens per lot. There are some restrictions to address concerns neighbors may have, including banning noisy roosters.
The Bismarck Tribune says all chickens, coops and runs must be located in the rear or side yard of a property, obscured from street view. Van Dyke says a one-year revocable permit would be required to raise chickens, along with a $100 fee.
Final approval is required at another commission meeting.
