What do you think the next move should be in Vacaville regarding backyard chickens?
Honestly, I think that continuing to approach the city about it at this point is the wrong thing to do. I think, especially in the case of Harris and Hunt, that they have "spoken" on the subject and that continuing to come to them about it will only make them mad. As it is, it is still very difficult for animal control to make anyone get rid of chickens - during the 10 min. break after discussing the chickens, I heard the animal control officer telling a woman that his hands are still relatively tied on the subject. This is of course just my opinion, and I'm in NO way telling anyone what to do, but I think that outside of filing an official request for a change of ordinance (that would force them to do the research on the subject,) or acting after consulting a lawyer, hounding them further on the subject is only going to hurt our cause.
Second, you are correct, I not once told you what to do.
It is simply my opinion, especially in the case of Harris's nasty attitude, that anything short of filing an official request for change of ordinance will not get us anywhere.
Even if she does interpret it to truly mean we can't have fowl on less than one acre, they voted NOT to open the code to any research or changes, so that's in our favor. (by favor, I mean that a call about chickens is really low priority at the moment and might very well not be investigated.)
