Stuart Commissioner rescinds Backyard Chicken vote
Backyard Chickens are no longer going to be allowed in Stuart. Commissioner Jeffrey Krauskopf has rescinded his vote on the measure. This tipped the scales against the chickens. The commissioner cited residents’ responses as his reason for changing his vote.
No one was made aware that the issue would be rehashed, the item was not on the agenda, and there was no public comment. Commissioner Krauskopf wanted to change his vote, and because of a technicality in the filing of the ordinance, he could.
There is not much that the citizens can do besides express their opinions.
