There was no need to workout this morning, as the workout my heart did all day in anticipation for my presentation to Council, was the same as a full fledged run. All in all it was good. I made my presentation, no one asked me questions I couldn't answer and they complimented me on how prepared I was.
They want to ask their lawyer about the legalities of initiating a pilot project within an existing bylaw and if he gives a go ahead, at the next meeting in 2 weeks, I believe they will grant me my chickens.
They, the little chicks, arrive tomorrow and will go to their foster family for the scheduled 3 weeks. I hope by the time this is up, that I will have permission to bring them home. It is a waiting game, but I do believe that I have council's blessing as one councillor stated that she would like to see a pilot project and the others nodded. I have gone online and found other municipalities doing pilot projects on various topics, so I cannot see it being a problem.
We are not going to start building a coop until we get the definite go ahead, and when we do, I will post pictures of their arrival.
