The Wilmore City Council approved an ordinance Monday night that bans most livestock within the city limits.
Residents of Wilmore will not be able to keep horses, cattle, sheep, llamas, donkeys, mules or buffalo within the city limits unless they have two acres per animal.
The council made some changes to the proposed ordinance before the vote. No roosters or male goats will be allowed in the city limits; a previous version of the ordinance exempted goats and poultry.
In addition, the final ordinance allows up to two female goats and up to six poultry in the city limits, said City Clerk Phyllis Sallee.
Never miss a local story.
The council struck a portion of the ordinance that said no livestock would be permanently boarded within 200 feet of a neighboring residence, city park, church or school, Sallee said.
Livestock owners will have a year to comply with the new rule. After that, violators will be fined $25 a day.
Council members Jeff Baier, Lynn Cooper, Kim Deyer, Leonard Fitch and Jeff James voted for the ordinance. Council member Jim Brumfield voted no.
