Short story...last Friday our town's police chief came to my door and said I needed to get rid of our 4 hens by Monday because we have an ordinance that said "No Poultry Fowl". It was a warning, so no citation. No ordinance number. I went to a council meeting voiced my complaint about this. I got a 10 day reprieve on the "Ordinance". Didn't matter, I took my girls to my MIL's over the weekend and I'm not carting them back and forth for an extra 10 days and risk stressing them.
After an entire week of asking for the ordinance number, stating my case using MRTFA and GAAMPS. Giving examples of other local towns to change ordinances, I even had the paper out.
Turns out there is no ordinance. Zoning doesn't say I CAN have poultry, so the chief assumed I can't! It's super vague or in my opinion that is no ordinance at all. So now the chief calls today and tells me it's most likely in the councils hands. I called our zoning admin again and am waiting for a call back.
This has all been very stressful on our family as you might imagine and I am due with a baby in a few weeks, so this better get resolved. My first reaction is to go get my girls back from MIL's. They can't make a special ordinance just for me can they?
