Urban farming OK
The State of Michigan recently passed a law allowing municipalities to ban residents from raising livestock and fowl in their yards.
Clarkston has no interest in such an ordinancee, said City Manager Carol Eberhardt.
“Several city residents do raise fowl and many have large gardens, some in front yards,” Eberhardt said.
The City Ordinance Committee reviewed the ordinance about a month ago and voted unanimously not to prohibit residents from raising farm animals.
Eberhardt said the decision was unanimous because the city supports the urban farming concept.
Clarkston chapter of Mothers & More launched a “Little Change” Diaper Drive during the month of May.
“This is no small donation,” said Priscilla Perkins, Lighthouse Chief Development Officer. “A case of diapers costs upwards of $50.00 and we are always in need.”
At Neiman’s Family Market, 7121 Dixie Highway, will be selling specially marked diaper packages for the diaper drive
donation sites also include Lil’ Peoples’ Place, 6475 Waldon Center Drive, and Busy Bodies, 6678 Dixie Highway.
