The Billings Backyard Hen Initiative will be asking the city council to amend city ordinances to allow for the responsible keeping of a limited number of backyard hens in clean, enclosed, predator proof coops.
Because the city council and mayor are elected officials, it is important that we, as their electoral voters, express our wishes to them so that they can make an informed decision. Everyone knows this… our government is “for the people, by the people, of the people…”
Here’s where we need YOUR help. If you are a resident of Yellowstone county, please send our mayor HanelT@ci.billings.mt.us and city council members firstname.lastname@example.org an email indicating your support of urban hens in Billings. If you can’t send an email, http://ci.billings.mt.us/index.aspx?nid=159 indicates telephone numbers for each member of the city council.
We’re not trying to be a pest about this, but we are trying to make sure that our elected officials are aware of our desires as citizens of our city. We need your help!
