The City of Bonners Ferry recently adopted ordinances adjusting livestock uses and standards in the city's Residential B zone districts, and making community gardens okay anywhere in city limits.

The new rules prohibits roosters in areas zoned Residential B and requires a minimum of one acre for keeping livestock permitted in the zone, and sets the upper limit on animals allowed. For hens, a city Residential B reasident with one acre could keep a dozen hens, for example.

The full text of Ordinance No. 586 is available for review at Bonners Ferry City Hall, 7232 Main Street, Bonners Ferry, during regular business hours.
