Council scrambles chicken proposal
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Some called foul, but barnyard fowl won't be allowed in Chattanooga - at least in close neighborhoods.
The City Council voted 6-3 on Tuesday against the proposal.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/12qKxa6 ) reported property rights were argued by both sides. The pro-chicken folks saying they should be able to use their land to provide their own eggs and anti-fowl forces saying property rights would tank.
In the end, Council member Larry Grohn pointed out chickens are already allowed on city property of at least two acres.
