The Village’s concealed carrying weapons ordinance needed to be changed to bring it in compliance with changes made at the state level, Caledonia Police Chief Toby Schey told the village board on Monday.

The changes were made regarding the use and discharge of arms, specifically as it relates to the village’s carrying concealed weapons ordinance.

The village’s ordinance needed to be updated because state statutes used to prohibit hunters from using rifles for deer hunting purposes, but that has changed. While there are no public hunting grounds in Caledonia, hunting  is allowable on private property, where legal, is by land owner permission only.

Most of the changes were made to clean up the map that shows the areas where firearms are restricted, including the Nicholson Wildlife Area.

In the area around Cliffside Park property owners wanted the use of firearms in the area, which the village was able to accommodate because they had enough signatures collected on a petition to support the decision, Schey explained.
