Milan Council to decide if miniature horses will be allowed in town

Up for discussion at the Milan Town Council meeting in January was the question about having miniature horses in town. Blake Haag was at the meeting to speak on behalf of the property at 619 W. Ellis. He has a sale pending and the only drawback would be if the clients could not have their three “therapy” miniature horses they presently own. He asked Council members to reconsider the existing ordinance that prohibits these animals. He said he had approval from the present adjacent property owners.
