And a Cluck-Cluck here and Cluck-Cluck there....

FYI for anyone who really cares about this issue.  I am all for having chickens in the city but have no plans to keep keep them myself.  I saw Karen Bennett recently and told her I support her bill allowing chickens in the city buy told her I opposed the $25 annual fee for having chickens.  She said, the only way to control how many chickens one had and to make sure they had all hens and no roosters and were abiding by the restrictions was to have a permit and registration process. She said the bill could not pass without it. I understand, but wish an expansion of the bureaucracy was not necessary.

TO:                         Vice Mayor Diane Neighbors & Members of Metro Council

FROM:                   Councilwoman Karen Bennett

RE:                          Discussion of Domesticated Hen Bill - Ordinance No. BL2011-47

The purpose of this memorandum is to invite each of you to attend a meeting to discuss the proposed domesticated hen bill that will be considered by the Metro Council on public hearing in January 2012.

This meeting is open to residents county-wide and will allow an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and receive information about the permitted uses of this bill and how it will affect our community.  I have asked representatives from the Metro Health and Codes Administration Departments to attend to provide input.  The meeting is scheduled as follows:

                                Date:                     Monday, November 14, 2011

                                Time:                    6:30 p.m.

                                Place:                    Skyline Medical Center - Downstairs Auditorium
                                                             3441 Dickerson Pike, Nashville, TN  37207

Thank you for your attention and cooperation in this regard.  I look forward to meeting with you.
