    QUESTION: I recently went before the Sulphur City Council for an introduction for a variance of a city ordinance. I was told I would appear for the introduction and state the reasons for request. I was also told to submit as much information and sent a letter to each council person explaining that my 11-year-old grandson wanted chickens for a project he was working on. I also sent a signed letter from the only neighbor who this may affect stating he had no objection.
