At the last regular meeting of the city council, aldermen finally got, disseminated, and read through information on the pros and cons of having chicks in your backyard.
Councilman Wally McHenry noted that if the issue passed, “Having a chick ordinance would be one more issue to take care of.”
Councilwoman Wendy Judisch, in favor of having backyard chicks commented, “Personally, I don’t see a problem with it. It seems like it’s the newest wave, I don’t know how it could be a problem.”
Mayor John Shevlin said he’d asked a lot of people about this and had two past mayors and a councilman who essentially said, “Don’t go there.”
Vern Stokes, manager of the Pondera County Canal & Reservoir Company (PCCRC) will be the featured speaker at the Marias River Watershed (MRW) quarterly meeting scheduled for Jan. 6, 2010 at the Marias River Electric hospitality room, in Shelby at 1 p.m.
Stokes’ presentation will feature two major wasteway projects completed with the assistance of grant funds supported by the Marias River Watershed.
