Machesney Park chicken ordinance doesn't survive board vote


Backyard chickens will not be allowed in Machesney Park.

Village board members voted down the idea, 5 to 2.  It barely made it out of committee 2 weeks ago. 

One board member, Robbin Snodgrass, says some residents are still pushing for the ordinance and may try to bring it up for a vote again. But she doesn't think that's likely.
