FERRYSBURG, Mich. (AP) — Residents in Ferrysburg are expected to decide whether to allow farm animals within city limits.
The Grand Haven Tribune reports Ferrysburg City Council this week voted not to repeal an ordinance on the issue, setting up the Nov. 3 vote.
The decision came after Ferrysburg Residents for Responsible Land Use filed a petition to have the ordinance repealed. City Council in May approved the ordinance, which says residents may keep two goats, five chickens or four rabbits on lots of an acre or larger.
The issue emerged last year when Adam and Amanda Montambo asked the city to allow them to continue to keep pet goats. The Montambos said Amanda Montambo and several of their children are allergic to cow’s milk and they used goat’s milk.
