Galtonians will not be permitted to keep egg-laying chickens in city limits, the Galt City Council decided Tuesday by not taking action on a proposed ordinance.
Councilman Mark Crews originally brought the idea forward at the request of a constituent, and it was first discussed last spring. At the time, the city council appeared split on the idea, but no vote was taken.
