CCR 03-16-16 Chicken Zombies Attack

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

"Chicken Zombies Attack"

   What might turn out to be better viewing than the "Gunfight at the OK Corral" will be the Thursday city council meeting on ICTV.  Pop the corn and settle back to see if the Chicken Zombies find enough fertile brain material in council members’ craniums to allow them to listen to citizens and not take any formal action on agenda Item #29.
   For factual details regarding the chicken ordinance ban, click on the following link to the Dallas Morning News article by Lloyd Brumfield.

   There is one unsettling quote noted in the article.  And that is:

Irving’s Animal Services Manager, Corey Price, stated in the article: “People say there was no public comment period.  Well, pick up the phone and call us. That’s your time to comment.”

   When did this individual decide a "new public input process" for Irving ordinances, by phone calls, was necessary?  Was she instructed to have a committee meeting and then send the issue directly to the administration for inclusion on a council agenda and bypass a genuine public input session?
   The question becomes: Why should the administration or city council attempt to handle the chicken banning ordinance differently than they have in the past?  
  Of course, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, has been busy on his Twitter account to garner support from his non-human friends.  While he believes many of his non-human friends might be better suited to decide on this issue, he will do what he can to keep the public informed.

   In the Wednesday afternoon city council work session, there appears to be a consensus to: postpone the chicken ban ordinance; conduct a public hearing to hear citizen voices to incorporate new thoughts/ideas/concerns regarding the ordinance; and move the ordinance process in an open, transparent and community involved manner.
   Details on this how this review process will be handled should be forthcoming from the city administration fairly soon.  When known, readers of the CCR will be informed.
