LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Let citizens have chickens

One thing that this “virus” crisis has shown is that once again the City Council has failed the citizens of Odessa.

The people of Odessa deserve the right to be just a little bit self-sufficient. Every town surrounding us allows a small amount of backyard chickens, even Midland allows them.
