Brigantine City Council now considering a ban on residential livestock.
With the arrival of Starlight Nova, a beloved rescue pony, seems like City ordinance could use an update?
There is no law against the boarding of horses and livestock in Brigantine. Does that mean Starlight Nova can stay, or at least visit?
The beautiful equine narrowly escaped a kill farm. Starlight Nova now enjoying a spacious front yard on Bayshore Avenue in Brigantine. Neighbors even bring her apples and carrots.
At the January 7, 2021 Brigantine Council meeting, Mayor Vince Sera said: before we can take action, it needs to be advertised. Public input needed.
What does the future hold for Starlight Nova, the rescue pony?
Is it OK to have a horse in your Brigantine front yard? Not an easy decision to make. Everybody loves Starlight Nova.
Zoned residential, not a farm. Nobody gonna be milking cows any time soonBrigantine Councilman Riordan
