Due to extremely low water levels, Lake Benson boathouse will be closed this weekend.
On June 2, 2014 the Town Council passed an Ordinance establishing new regulations regarding backyard hens. The Town now permits residents to keep up to 8 hens with a backyard hen permit. For more information and best practices for keeping backyard hens please see our Guide to the Rules and Regulations + Best Practices for keeping backyard hens. If you are interested in keeping backyard hens and want to apply for a permit use the backyard hen permit application. If you have questions or need assistance in the permitting process you can contact the Planning Department at (919) 773-4449.
