So - we're down and dirty here in Aurora, CO, trying to get City Council to change their mind about allowing chickens. We've addressed most issues (noise, smell, predators, etc.), but the one BIGGEST argument against them is that if the city allows chickens, they will have to hire more personnel to deal with permits, complaints, and compliance. [Never mind that the only way this is true is if many many people want chickens, in which case City Council needs to be representing all those in favor, not fighting them.] Anyway - I need proof that this isn't so. I have an article from Longmont, CO, stating that there aren't many complaints. But does ANYONE know of a city where this happened? They had to hire more animal care or neighborhood services people to cover the flocks of chickens??? Or even better, a city where they thought they would and DIDN'T. Or hired people and then they had nothing to do?? It's an absurd argument and I'm not sure how to address it with facts. Thanks.
