The Answer is Maybe!

Terrific news Monday evening. A glimmer of hope is good news, isn't it? The alderperson for our district called me concerning chickens. In order to allow chickens, we must change the ordinance to allow them.

My task is to gather copies of other ordinances in the area that allow them, and prepare my presentation. When I have gathered my wits and my courage, I will call Alderman Bill to have me put on the agenda for the Committee of the Whole.

Anybody else in the Columbus, WI area want to come along for moral support? And verbal support, as I tend to say things in a perfunctory way when I'm nervous. Preparation is key! Can't wait! Please help!

The Answer is No

After two calls to City Hall (Anne) and no return calls, I emailed Jenny, District 2 Alder Woman.  Jenny was very prompt, which I appreciated.  She conferred with the City Attorney, the City Administrator, and the Mayor, and they all said "No chickens allowed."

Next steps...get in touch with my District 3 alderpersons.
