A public hearing on the first special use permit for an electric fence in Joliet was postponed when not enough members showed up for the Zoning Board of Appeals to hold a meeting on Thursday.
The zoning board meets next at 2 p.m. Feb. 21.
Electric Guard Dog has applied for a special use permit to put an electric fence around JND Truck Repair at 251 Republic Ave.
Joliet lifted a longtime electric fence ban in December at the urging of Electric Guard Dog, a South Carolina fence company. Now, special use permits can be issued for electric fences in areas zoned for industrial or intermodal use.
JND Truck Repair is bordered on three sides by property zoned industrial, according to a staff report.
A bike path along the former Joliet Junction Railroad is on its west edge.
