Revised Kennel Ordinance would exempt Agricultural Property

A revised version of the proposed Kennel Ordinance got a first reading at Tuesday's Adair County Fiscal Court meeting. Download the new version of the proposed ordinance here: 20210915091511733 Revised Animal Ordinance (PDF).

The revised ordinance would keep the 10 animal limit for licensing requirements, although a notable change is wording to make the ordinance apply only after a complaint is received, under a "Complaint Procedures" section.

The new version also ads a specific and explicit exemption from the ordinance for agricultural property, which is defined in the ordinance as "Any tract of land, including all income-producing improvements of at least ten (10) contiguous acres in area used for the production of livestock, livestock products, poultry, poultry products, and/or the growing of tobacco and/or other crops including timber."
