PORT WASHINGTON -- When Port Washington Village Council met, a presentation on the subject of sheep was given.
Sandra Huff, a 4-H member, gave a very interesting report of the raising of sheep as that is going to be her project. She is trying to be allowed to raise the sheep in a closed portion of her yard.
Mayor Tom Gardner said he is in support of 4-H projects. An ordinance in effect, prohibits pigs, horses, fowl and no more than two dogs.
A motion was made and seconded on a vote of 4-to-2 to renew the old ordinance to allow one sheep and one animal per family as a 4-H project and no animals larger than a pig. These animals will be subject to council approval. Ordinance will be voted on at the March 15 meeting.
Rick Swiger said the cemetery roads are cleared now.
Motion was made and passed by council to hire a auxiliary policeman as recommended by Port Washington Police Chief Shawn Nelson.
Councilman Joe Bourne gave the report of the Delaware Valley Fire Department. Bourne said an inventory had been taken of trucks and equipment and miscellaneous with a value of $644,913.
Councilmember Lori Goettge was given permission to use Belden Park for the annual Easter Egg Hunt on March 27 starting at 1 p.m. The egg hunt is sponsored by Tri County Ambulance Auxiliary.
