Riverton Residents Free To Keep Chickens
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — The Riverton City Council has voted to allow residents to keep chickens within the city limits.
The Associated Press reports that the council on Tuesday rejected a suggestion from city staff to limit residents to six chickens and ban from keeping the birds for commercial purposes.
Mayor Ron Warpness agreed with other council members that residents should be allowed to follow their common sense on caring for their chickens. The mayor says the council doesn’t want to inject itself into private property rights if it doesn’t have to.
