    Arlington’s Mayor would appreciate this.

    Oh please. I know of at least one Highland Park family who owned chickens for years and it was never an issue for their neighbors. Roosters would obviously be a problem but chickens are quiet and actually make great pets. As long as their wings are clipped to prevent flying over fences, I can’t imagine why anyone would have an issue with this.

    My opinion is if you want your own chickens, move out of the city. If you are concerned about “fresh and tasty” eggs, work with a local farmer.

    More code enforcement to our already burdened city. I already support everyone else’s kids with the school tax, I do not want to pay for policing chickens too.

    I can only hope our fine city council votes against chickens in the backyard. The argument that “Dallas allows it” is not compelling. When did we pick Dallas as the model city for UP to follow?

    I’m just wondering if i can send my resume to UP code dept. for “chicken enforcement” position. I’ll buy my own chicken costume (let’s laugh a little!).

    Folks, its just chickens. A few would probably be ok (hens). By the way “Leslie”, and without being disrespectful to your comments, we all pay the school tax whether we have kids or not.

    Looking back growing up, I had a lunch card that afforded me to eat lunch. Thanks to those that did pay school taxes, i’m grateful today. It’s the circle of favor. Look at it this way, maybe one of the kids your taxes help support may in turn be in a profession that may save your life someday (i.e, police officer or doctor, to name a few). There’s a bigger picture. Nothing more mean’t by my comment.
