Animal ordinance tweaked
WAYNESFIELD — Property owners and Waynesfield village officials continue to disagree over a proposed ordinance on eventually eliminating farm animals within the village limits — with those grandfathered prior to its passage being required to register the land where the animals live instead of the animals themselves.
Waynesfield Village Council member Chris Kaufman only discussed the revised legislation, which was not brought to the floor for a formal reading during Monday’s council meeting. The ordinance, which was tabled, would make owning farm animals a violation of village ordinance unless the animals already exist on the property, which there are three cases within the corporation limits.
