It was a hoot to read about a Twp. Supervisor in central Pa. who made the
news because he just discovered that the local landfill was using a
neighbor's goats to mow the grass and keep the brush down.  The Twp.
Supervisor in question immediately sought the advice of the solicitor who
told him that the goats were illegal because it was an area zoned industrial
not agricultural.  The Landfill owner said that they were alternate
lawnmowing equipment and were not being removed from the equipment inventory
until an official notice was sent out.  Another Twp. Supervisor told the
first one that he saw nothing wrong with using goats as it was cost
effective and saved using humans in places that were very dangerous.
I think that it was an idea that should be presented to all municipalities,
i.e., goats and sheep for mowing large expanses of lawns.  The White House
lawn was mowed by sheep until the mid 1920's.  City folks would have access
to manure.
