Commissioners: On Tuesday March 8th you will be discussing backyard hens, possibly for the first time in 476 days (the matter of sentinel chickens was a separate, but related, issue).
Commissioner Caragiulo: ". . .we don't want to put a burden of basically get everyone to agree to a point and then bring it back to us." "I think it's a worthwhile discussion certainly. -- Frankly you do have gauge if there's any interest."
Commissioner Hines: "Before we change our zoning code, I think we ask is there a public interest in doing this beyond, you know, five, ten, twenty people -- is there a public interest to do this? And, so, rather than us trying to go out and explore that public interest. . ." "We asked the folks to go out and maybe get some petitions signed or some information -- not necessarily bring in a bus of two hundred people (interruption) and public comments to do it and to see if there's interest and that hasn't occurred . . " "Maybe the timing is right, but if there's only twenty or thirty people in the county that wants this. . . that's what we've not heard".
Commissioner Maio did not comment during the discussion.
