FOLEY – Benton County is considering allowing more residents to have chickens.  The Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the issue tomorrow (Tuesday), during their regular meeting.

Department of Development Director Joe Janish says right now residents with less than two acres can only have cats, dogs, and other domestic animals customarily kept as household pets.

The issue was raised by a Watab Township resident who got a letter from the county stating he had to remove his chickens.

The Board of Commissioners could approve the change, deny the request, or take no action.  The hearing is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday).
