Subject: Baliles – Council – Chickens
Dear Mr. Baliles,When were you made aware that the 200 permit limit had been dropped?“Early discussion on allowing chickens indicated that the city administration would limit the number of permits to 200 in the first year, though that provision has since been dropped, according to City Council President Charles R. Samuels, who has pushed the legislation, and correspondence from the city administration.” Times-Dispatch, 2013 APR 8.There seem to be conflicting statements coming from the city administration. (See below)I did not receive a response from you regarding my April 3 letter.Thank you,C. Wayne TaylorCopy: Council, Press, Better Government Richmond
