Hillsdale clarifies chicken ordinance

HILLSDALE – Village trustees on Monday clarified its ordinance allowing residents to keep chickens within the village limits. Guidelines were discussed and accepted at a summer meeting, but the final ordinance was never approved. Recent complaints of chickens running loose in Hillsdale and a rooster in a trailer park prompted the board to finalize the ordinance, which was unanimously passed.
