At the last Roeland Park City Council meeting discussion regarding backyard hens and the permit, comments were made about how much it would cost to enforce codes(suggested per incident fee for chicken calls**) and that animal control would pass calls on to our Police Dept (because NEACC only handles wild or domestic animal calls)---wait a minute--aren't chickens members of one of those two categories?
The link leads you to the code that creates the commission and outlines its budget procedure, how the cities pay them (RP share is $54,000) and its role in animal control for the communities it serves. Take a read and be informed about this particular item that was brought up for discussion at the last meeting.
There are several steps:
Go to: http://www.roelandpark.net/codes/CODES.html
then to the left click on the first item "New Ordinances Adopted..."
then click on # 802...you are at the code.
**We have posted the comments from three other cities citing very little if any impact on their Animal Control Departments in a previous post.
