New Brighton orders ban on fowl

In the minutes before New Brighton's May 12 city council meeting, residents packed City Hall hoping to have a chance to speak at a public hearing for or against a proposed ordinance that would regulate raising chickens in the city. The meeting turned on its heel when Mayor Dave Jacobsen proposed staff draft a ban on all fowl in the city, which was approved with a 3-2 vote. The council will vote on the ban May 26.

Railroad should complete work by early 2016
Almost a year after the Minnesota Legislature set aside nearly $2 million intended to lessen the noise at railroad crossings in Shoreview and Little Canada, deals are in place to move forward with railroad quiet zone plans.
Shoreview approved deals with the state and the railroad at its May 4 council meeting and Little Canada is expected to do the same during a rescheduled council meeting on May 11, after the deadline for this edition of the Bulletin.
