Sun Prairie City Council approves chicken-raising ordinance

The lack of a permit limit was set in the ordinance after City Attorney Mark Leonard recommended no limit based on case law ruling a limit on the number of permits was not allowable. District 4 Alder Al Guyant disagreed with the recommendation and attempted to limit the number of permits to 10 for up to four hens that may be raised at single family residences.
