The Village board is meeting tonight in an attempt to redefine the legal definition of the word "livestock" instead of properly addressing the urban agriculture movement.
The grounds for clarifying this ordinance is "Can Brookfield continue to enjoy this privilege that has been available to all citizens since it's inception?"
It is worth mentioning that the board as a whole has NOT heard any of the factual data that supports keeping backyard chickens. We have yet to present this information to the group. The BYC movement supporters in our village should expect factual evidence, not subjective opinion, to be the basis on which this decision is made.
Do we want a government who revokes civil liberties without community feedback, justification and incontrovertible data to support their action?
6:30 tonight at The Village Hall. Please come out and support us!
