   A group home for people with eating disorders is getting the go ahead in Town and Country.  

   The Board of Aldermen Monday night unanimously approved a conditional use permit for a McCallum Place residential treatment center in a single-family home the 13,400 block of Conway Road.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the city had little say over the plan because it met with conditions set by state law.  

   The home, which sits alone on 18 acres near Maryville University, would serve up to eight people.  The paper reports that other than some striped parking spaces, there would be no changes to the site.

   McCallum Place operates other eating disorder treatment facilities in Webster Groves and Kirkwood.

   A metro-east village is considering an ordinance that would allow residents to raise poultry.

   The Alton Telegraph reports that Godfrey trustees early next month will consider an ordinance related to raising chickens on property zoned as residential. The Godfrey measure is patterned at least partly after one in nearby Alton.

   Godfrey resident Kenny Feazel is hungry for the change. Unaware they were illegal, he's been raising chickens since April to have fresh, organic eggs because his wife is too sensitive to store-bought ones. The couple also raises their eight chickens to produce fertilizer for their organic garden.

   A Feazel neighbor complained about the birds, prompting Grafton officials to take a look at the issue.

   Godfrey lies along the Mississippi River in Madison County, north of St. Louis.
