JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Jonesboro city council committee is set to discuss whether certain swine should be allowed as pets in city limits, again.
The issue started making headlines in 2016 when a Jonesboro woman was cited for owning two pot-bellied pigs.
Her pigs, Fern and Wilbur, are not allowed in city limits, according to an ordinance with the City of Jonesboro.
In fact, the ordinance states that it is illegal to own any kind of swine within city limits.
The issue was set to go back before the council committee in January, but it was tabled.
The Public Safety Council Committee will discuss the proposed amendment at 5 p.m. in the city council chambers.
