Before Jeremy Looper addressed Craig City Council, some adjustments had to be made to the microphone. Looper, an 11-year-old Craig resident and member of Boy Scouts Troop No. 172, could barely see over the podium. After some deliberation, City Manager Jim Ferree decided to hold the microphone so Looper could be heard. Looper attended the council’s regular Tuesday meeting to discuss the ordinance that prohibits chickens within city limits. Several members of the audience spoke for and against chickens, and the council weighed in on the issue, too.
