September 4, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Acting against the advice of the Planning Board, the City Council repealed the ban on backyard chickens Tuesday, reversing itself in the process.
The council voted 4-3 to allow residents to keep chickens in the least populous neighborhoods, a little more than a year after defeating a similar proposal. The new measure requires a follow-up vote of affirmation in two weeks to become law, but Councilwoman Melissa Murray, the lead sponsor, doesn’t expect officials to change their minds.
