ODESSA- A discussion to allow chickens within town limits was tabled by council at the regular meeting Monday, May 9 until a proposal was made or petitioned.
Vivianne Poe, an Odessa resident, said that she understood the council’s concerns.
“Good coop management could be enforced,” Poe said.
“Raising chickens is about more than just making an omelet,” she added. “There are some breeds that are like pets and are docile.”
Mayor William Crossley countered Poe’s point.
“We hear you, but we can’t even get people to register their dogs and cats,” Crossley said.
