TEXAS - After several drafts of an animal-control ordinance were considered and rejected, Poth city council adopted an ordinance on the keeping of animals at its Aug. 20 meeting.

Mayor Chrystal Eckel discussed the proposed ordinance with the city council before councilmen Darren Dylla, Steven Martinez, Travis Pruski, Rita Serna, and Patrick Skloss approved it by a 5-0 vote. It contains very specific rules by which domestic animals and livestock may be kept.

Cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and poultry may not be kept on a residents property unless the property is two acres or larger. Roosters, swine, pigs, exotic animals, and wild animals domesticated or otherwise are not to be kept within the city limits.

Acreage and pens must be kept clean and sanitary, the ordinance states.
