Speak up if you don’t want chickens

Re: Opposition to raising chickens within city limits.

I am not sure if the majority of residents/taxpayers in the City of Greenwood know that city council is considering allowing the raising of chickens within the boundaries of the city.

I am not sure that the majority of residents would want their next door neighbours raising chickens.

Maybe they do. If they don’t, however, I just want to remind them that they should let their thoughts be known to city council.

That old saying is so true—the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

I have no idea how many people want to raise chickens, but if the majority of taxpayers are opposed, then council should not even be considering the matter.
