Falls City Council approves permit for goats in city limits

(KLZA)-- Following a public hearing and a considerable amount of discussion, the Falls City Council Monday evening approved an animal permit for Tim and Shannon Fischer to have two goats on their property at 806, East 11th Street.

The goats are currently small and being bottle fed for their daughter, Ember, to use as a 4-H project.

The vote was 5-1 with Council member Don Ferguson casting a nay vote after several neighbors approached him who were against having goats in the neighborhood. Council member Derek Leyden abstained from the vote and Council member Joe Buckminster was absent from the meeting.

In other business, the Council approved a $5,000 donation to Falls City Recreation.

Council members also voted to authorize execution of an agreement for an asphalt overlay on the old tennis and basketball court at Dallas Jones Park at a cost estimated at $3-thousand.

The 2-inch overlay will allow the area to be striped for a basketball court and two pickle ball courts.
