The Otero county commissoners are holding a special meeting on July 24th at 6 pm in the commission chambers in Alamogordo to review and take further public comment on this draft ordinance. They will proceed to schedule a public hearing on the final draft and then vote to accept it.
If you own domestic animals or livestock (even bees) you should be aware of this ordinance. The original ordinance was three pages this one is 28 at present.
If passed there will be numerous permits and fees required as well as double fencing your livestock away from property lines.
If you do not have access to the county ordinances let me know. I might be able to email you a copy.
Robert and I will be there.
Great news! We got them to remove honeybees from being listed as "Livestock" and got a few other things changed. Basically turned it into a dog/cat/pet ordinance. Hopefully it stays this way. Will need to watch these guys.
Meeting #5 to review the draft Animal Control ordinance is scheduled for August 21st, 6 pm, room 123, the commission chambers.
