The Porter Town
Council will deal with vintage South Shore passengers cars and whether to
allow urban chickens on smaller residential lots when the council meets
The meeting begins
at 7 p.m. at the town hall. The public may comment on other non-agenda items
as one of the first matters of business. The council last met June 10.
Tourism is soliciting a donation from Porter to help study the feasibility
of using decommissioned South Shore train cars to ferry passengers through
Porter between the Indiana Dunes State Park and Chesterton with stops at the
Porter County Visitor Center on Indiana 49. Other uses such as fixed display
of South Shore cars will be studied as well.
On the second
matter, May 13 the council heard a resident’s request to keep her chickens
even though the lot size was less than town code allows. The council agreed
to research the matter and take public input at a future meeting.
At that time
council members voiced differing opinions whether town code should be
changed and if so, how.
Other business at
Tuesday’s meeting includes health insurance and reports from department
