So, I made a post a while back about attempting to change the ordinance that removed the ability to have chickens back in 2010 in Munster, IN. This is a very small town and is quite, um... "uppity". I just spoke to a man from the town and he really didn't give me a lot of hope. Here's what he said:
The reason why the ordinance was made was:
1) the smell. He went on an on and on about this... said that if the wind blew in the right direction that the neighborhood would be affected by the coops that weren't kept up
2) they had roosters (I said, well you can tell people they can't)
3) the town wants to "progress" and allowing people to have chickens would be sort of going backwards, would it not?
4) It's all about the quality of life for the town residents and the people who had chickens affected the quality of life of those around them
Ok... so, give all of that, do you have advice/suggestions about how to refute these things or argue my point? Like I said, he mentioned the smell thing over and over again.
