While she understands times are tough, economically speaking, she isn't thrilled about having a horse housed in the home next to hers.
"I lived on a farm and I understand the love for animals," Killion said. "But there's got to be some kind of end in sight. Large animals don't need to be in city limits. That's why they have city limits."
Killion was one of several residents who attended the council's work session regarding the city's current animal ordinance.
She said the home next to hers has housed not only the horse, but chickens as well.
The owner of the horse was also at the meeting and told the council members due to expenses, they have temporarily housed the horse at the property.
But Killion stated she hoped the council would take action soon, hoping the ordinance could be amended.
"I'm not the only person in the city with this issue," she said, also offering up other city ordinances regarding animals.
The session, Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw said, was intended to receive public opinion on the issue. Council President Steve Lamb was unable to attend the meeting.
"We want your views," she said, pointing out concerns she has heard from residents regarding farm animals within city limits.
Council member Sam Glover explained to the audience the current animal ordinance does not prohibit any animals but pigs within city limits.
He stressed the council planned to look into the issue.
"We've got to set limits and see what can be done," he said.
Area resident Trey Adams also attended the meeting. He said his property was one of the areas the city recently annexed. He asked the council to take this into account.
Council member Brad Deal said as far as he was concerned, Adams' property was not an issue, but stressed he agreed with Glover regarding the ordinance.
"There are a lot of things we have to consider," Deal said.
Brazil resident and Clay County 4-H member Mannah Mace provided a statement for the council.
Mace explained she shows rabbits in 4-H, adding many other 4-H'rs show rabbits and live within the city limits. She said she hoped the council would take this into consideration.
"I'm glad somebody from 4-H came," Glover said. "Even though we're a city, we're still rural.
"I hope everybody sees by the overview, what we're dealing with."
"You've got your work cut out for you," Killion quipped. "Everybody's got an agenda. You do have a lot to consider."
Council member Bill Lovett agreed.
"Some people are going to lose and some people are going to win," he said. "You can't please everybody."
Regardless, Glover said he believed the current ordinance needed changing.
"Currently, what we have is inadequate," he said. "I think we need to do something to tweak our ordinance."
Council members said they hoped to have more meetings with the public regarding the issue.
The council meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month in Council Chambers at City Hall. Its next scheduled meeting is set for 7 p.m., Dec. 8.
