Hi everyone. Some of you know, I've been awaiting a meeting,that never seemed to happen regarding our ducks. So, tonight was the meeting finally. Now, I wholeheartedly understood that we had a 1 in a million chance that we would be able to keep our ducks. I expected residents to voice their concerns and complaints to the mayor and council of course....what i did not ever expect.. was what happened tonight. While my 12 year old daughter and I were speaking to the mayor and council...Grown men and women (residents, not council) were actually making fun of my daughter, laughing and making inappropriate comments. ONe man said "oh, she's gonna cry now!" People laughed loudly when she said "the ducks are like my children" and they said "omg, like your children??" and laughed. i could go on and on about what was heard by us, and what was heard by my mother who was still seeted while we spoke. obviously my daughter was devastated by what these immature people were doing. So, the mayor and council were decent in their treatment of us, and delayed the desicion to next months meeting. but in the meantime, they are going to come and see the ducks.....and go to neighbors houses and record any quacking etc... what a nightmare for all of us. I Almost wish they just denied us today, so we don't h ave to go through any of this anymore. How can people be so cruel????
