SIDNEY — The Sidney Zoning Board of Appeals Monday afternoon approved a pet-grooming business at a residence.

The board granted a request by Kathleen LaFramboise for a conditional-use permit for a home occupation at 117 W. Clay St. The approval was granted with a number of conditions as recommended by Community Services Director Barbara Dulworth on her staff report.

Among the conditions are:

• No more than three dogs will be permitted on the property at any time.

Several other conditions that are a part of the city’s home-occupation regulations also are included.
