The Galt Planning Commission will vote tonight on a proposal to allow up to four egg-laying chickens to residents who live within city limits.
The chickens would be required to be kept in an enclosure and the eggs used solely for the household's consumption. Lodi has a similar ordinance.
The idea received little Galt City Council support when it was discussed last month. Because it is a zoning issue, the plan must be approved by the Planning Commission.
If approved, it will then go back to the city council for a vote.
The Planning Commission meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. today in the Galt City Hall City Council chambers, 380 Civic Drive, Galt.
