Breezy Point City Council updates chicken ordinance


Breezy Point residents living in residential estate lots are now permitted to keep chickens. The zoning district was not left out intentionally but was inadvertently not included in the original ordinance.

The Breezy Point City Council voted unanimously Monday, July 7, to add the zoning district to a revised chicken ordinance. Council member Tom Lillehei acted as mayor in Mayor JoAnn Weaver's absence because of illness.
