The third and final presentation of an ordinance that would allow the raising of domestic hens in the city limits of Warsaw is to take place Monday night.
Warsaw Common Council is set to take what should be a final vote on the issue during the 7 p.m. meeting Monday night. In the last two meetings, the decision to approve the ordinance was split, first with a 3-2 vote against allowing hens and then with a 4-3 vote two weeks ago in favor of an amended ordinance.
Initially, councilwomen Cindy Dobbins, Diane Quance and Elaine Call voted against the ordinance citing reasons such as decreased property values and a question of how the city could enforce the ordinance.
In the second vote, Dobbins changed her vote to allow for the raising of domestic hens saying the calls she received from people in her district were split 50/50.
The council will welcome public input again on Monday. The meeting is being held in Warsaw City Hall beginning at 7 p.m.
