Board doesn't squawk; approves West Roxbury chicken coop

The Zoning Board of Appeals today approved a variance for a six-hen coop in the back yard of Chuck Abichaker's 151 Stratford St. home.

Abichaker told the board he keeps chickens mainly to provide eggs for his daughter, who doesn't eat meat. He said the coop is located next to the garage, at least 20 feet away from the nearest property line, with a chicken-sized entrance for the birds.

A neighbor supported the coop: "I've seen the coop. It's extremely clean, very well organized and it's something the whole neighborhood can be proud of."

Both the mayor's office and at-large Councilor Michael Flaherty also supported the coop.

Shouldn't it be "Mayor's office"?

Shouldn't the Mayor's office be disallowed from interjecting in neighborhood decisions like this one?

I stand humbly corrected and thank you!

... but it's an interesting grammar question, so you inspired me to look it up!

( Yes, I know there's another capitalization rule on that page that I
deliberately violate at Universal Hub, but that's sort of my signature. )
