During the Workshop there were 2 comments that I found appalling and 1 I found spot on. Although I was given the opportunity to voice my opinion to the Council I didn't because I did not feel I could maintain my composure after hearing some of the profound statements coming form our city officials.

1: A City official noted that they've opened Pandora's box. True statement. However, you (City Council) we're elected to represent THE CITIZENS of this city, not your own agenda. It's your job to make those hard decisions that require effort. If it's too hard for you, step down.

2: A Councilman noted when questioned to move discussion to next months agenda, (and I summarize,) is there a need to? His question came across (in my opinion) as if he felt that they had enough information to vote and his vote would be no.

This statement was made after the presenter noted that "it was close" referring to the "for & against" comments that were procured via paper and electronic survey to citizens. I beg to differ but the "fors" outweighed the nay sayers. I myself have no interest in having chickens but feel that it's the citizens choice and our Councils job to uphold the majorities choice.

3: A citizen commented to the Council concerning a comment made by a Council member concerning noise. He countered it with a comment about Dogs barking. Extremely valid point! How many of us have neighboring dogs that bark throughout the night and you're concerned with a few cackling chickens? Please... Wish the Council would put in half the effort concerning our current code on domestic animals (with emphasis on dogs) as they are apparently putting into this "chicken bill."
