According to Assistant City Attorney Ryan Soye, the city is trying to clean house by getting rid of ordinances that haven't been used.
Since 1999, only 12 applications to raise pigeons in the city have been filled out. Only two of those applications were approved.
Soye said the last application was approved in 2002, and that application was only good for one year.
"We traced it back as far back as 1962," said Soye. "At one point there were more individuals within the city who kept pigeons. Since it's used so infrequently now it's an opportunity to clean up the ordinances and rid ourselves of an ordinance that hasn't been used for quite some time."
The city will discuss the repealing of the ordinance at the Legal and Finance Committee meeting on Wednesday.
