Large, un-platted acres now huntable in Fulton

April 24th, 2013 in News

Landowners of 200 acres or more in Fulton are allowed to hunt and burn on their property following the passage of a bill at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

The ordinance amending Fulton's firearms code was amended by a contentious council, with councilmen Steve Moore and Mike West voting against. The dissenting representatives said they felt passing the ordinance was simply catering to a few specific people.

"I didn't have a problem initially, but I had a few people contact me and they felt like we were just making special arrangements for one person," said Moore. "In six or 12 months I don't want (people) coming back wanting more."
