Cadiz City Council gave the first reading of an ordinance Tuesday night requiring all livestock within city limits to be enclosed on one acre of land per animal and also resolved to seek out several grants totaling $500,000.

“The City Council of the City of Cadiz has found it necessary for public health and law and order for there to be an ordinance pertaining to [livestock] in the City of Cadiz,” the ordinance reads.

The ordinance singles out horses, cows, goats and sheep, but also pertains to “other livestock.”

In addition to requiring an acre of land per animal, the ordinance — which requires a second reading before it can be approved — would make it unlawful “to maintain or keep any stall or enclosure for such animals within 200 feet of any dwelling house, except the dwelling house of the owner of such animals.”

The ordinance also requires the stalls be kept “in a clean and sanitary condition” and be subject to inspection by the County Health Officer.

City Council also passed two resolutions approving the submission of two grants on behalf of the city totaling a half-million dollars.

The first is a Renaissance on Main Funding application for $150,000 for streetscape improvements to Marion Street, with any surplus going toward more streetlights.

“I feel very good that we’ll get the grant,” Renaissance on Main Director Cindy Sholar said.

The Council also resolved to file for a $350,000 Community Economic Growth Grant. The application will be sent to the Kentucky Community Development Office in hopes to join their Radio Read Water Meter Project.
