MONTROSE, Iowa (AP) - Officials in the southeast Iowa city of Montrose are considering banning residents from keeping a variety of livestock within city limits.

The Keokuk Daily Gate City reports (https://bit.ly/1CZ2v8l ) the Montrose City Council discussed a ban last week and could take up the matter again at its Nov. 6 meeting.

Council member Mary Van Pelt conducted an informal poll of 50 residents and found that of the 14 who responded, 12 thought city residents shouldn’t be allowed to keep animals such as goats, pigs, cows and horses.

A variety of animals now are prohibited from residential areas, but Van Pelt supports an ordinance that wouldn’t allow residents to keep any hooved or split-hooved animals.

Montrose is a city of about 900 residents along the Mississippi River.
