    Hi there chicken gurus!

    I am brand new here and do not yet own any chickens. I am joining with some like minded chicken enthusiasts in my town to appeal our zoning regulation. The town officials seem to like the idea so far, but the first big hurdle we are encountering is a SIZEABLE fee for the appeal. It's nearly $800, which is, you know, a lot. That's a lot of skin in the game for our small group and the town can still say no.

    So I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for fundraising a fee for this purpose.

    All comments are appreciated!

    What is their reasoning for the fee?

    Are your selectmen not paid by your property taxes?

    The building should also be paid for, and upkeep taken care of by your property taxes.

    Where do you live?

    Best place to get money is from the bank ... I use my check book to access it. ;)
