Aurora City Council has called a special public meeting to consider overriding the veto of the recently proposed ordinance which would permit 4-Hers to keep small livestock inside city limits through June this year.

The meeting will begin at 5:50 p.m. or immediately following the Aurora Utilities Board meeting, which begins at 5 p.m. Monday, April 7, in the second floor conference room of the Aurora City Building, 235 Main St., said Aurora City Attorney Jeff Stratman.

The ordinance would allow livestock maturing at 90 lb. or less to be kept only in 2014 from March 1 to July 1 inside city limits, unless council later decided to extend the ordinance. It was passed 3-1 at the Monday, March 17, city council meeting, but Aurora Mayor Donnie Hastings said March 24 he did not intend to sign it.

At that time, Stratman said if Hastings did not sign the ordinance, it would die. If Hastings vetoed it, however, a 2/3 vote of council could override the veto, said Stratman. That would consist of four of the five council members.

Councilman Mike Crider voted against it March 17; councilman John Borgman was absent due to illness.
