Dates that will live in infamy:
November 13, 2007 - Local Law #1 of 2007 enacted (2nd time though) after a first failed attempt in
August. So much embarassment that they didn't even announce their blunder, hoping everyone
missed it. Supported by mayor toni campbell, trustees mark doeberl, amy clark, kim boomhower,
and pseudo-law expert clerk christian vischi.
December 2007 - mayor sends "courtesy letter" reminding Earlville Chickens that they live in the
village, says move out in 30 days or else.

Enforcement Officer displays his bird-brain mentality by serving a violation ticket. Says something
smart like "I know you have chickens." Earlville Chickens goes to court after ignoring unlawful
demand. Local judge ignores law and orders chickens to move out in 30 days. Earlville Chickens
appeals to County. Chicken Enforcement Officer ignores the appeal and serves another ticket of
vioalation after 30 days saying something smart again like, "I know you still have chickens." Also
serves a charge of violating the judge's order to get rid of the chickens, the order that was reversed
at the County court.
2009 June - Accomplice trustee kim boomhower does not run for re-election and leaves board for
"personal reasons." Earlville Chickens wins appeal on all arguments, making the village look like
the amateurs in law that they are. October 2009 the Chicken Enforcement Officer displays again
his bird-brain mentality and serves another ticket saying something like "I know you still have
chickens - I read it on the internet." Earlville Chickens case stalls in local court. Judge William
Faulkner resigns his elected position end of December.

resigns after 2 days without even going to the bench. Earlville Chickens case on its fourth judge.

position for "personal reasons."
2010 September Update - Of the 7 village "officials" originally involved in the harassment of
Earlville Chickens - mayor toni campbell, trustees mark doeberl, amy clark, kim boomhower, and
pseudo-law expert clerk christian vischi, judge william faulkner, and state licensed and mayor
appointed chicken enforcement officer matthew van heusen - 4 have left for "personal reasons"
and only 3 remain as village "officials." Who is next to leave? One has already announced a
planned move out of the area...
2010 November - A motion to repeal Local Law #1 of 2007, entered by Trustee Hayes, was
defeated 4-1, adding 3 more trustees to the list of those involved and opposing freedom and liberty
in the Village. Those voting "no" at the board meeting Nov 9 were trustees henry moore, william
excell, and thomas taylor, along with "just my opinion" lawsuit-fearing mayor mark doeberl himself.
2010 November 18 - Not satisfied with ongoing litigation, an "anonymous" complaint brought a
Madison County Department of Health visit to Earlville Chickens - though any complaints because
of health issues will always come up negative because Earlville Chickens is actually a benefit to the
village and neighbors since rodents are kept controlled. In other words, there are fewer, if any,
mice and rats at Earlville Chickens than any uncontrolled property in the Village!
2010 November 13 marks the three years since Spite Law #1 of 2007 was passed. The math is
simple: 3 Years + 2 Lawsuits + 1 Local Law = ONE BIG ZERO for Earlville!

only one, the chicken enforcment officer, is left.
2012 November - Five Years... entire Village Board refuses to drop charges and repeal the targeted
2013 Various dates - Village Board refuses to drop charges and repeal spite law. They say a
compromise is a solution and demand a new agreement be accepted to require annual inspections in
order to drop the charges. This amounts to nothing but blackmail. REFUSED. Village residents
complain to the board that it is affecting home sales. The mayor and board agree that something
needs to be done, but want to continue the lawsuit to inflict more damage on Earlville Chickens
before rewriting the law.
2013 October - Court Appearance October 9 sets trial date for December 4, 2013. Village attorney

deadline. Earlville Chickens refuses to accept anything different than the Village of Earlville honor

EARLVILLE VILLAGE GOVERNMENT SHAMES THEMSELVES AGAIN!
EARLVILLE CHICKENS WAS SERVED WITH A SEARCH WARRANT TO FIND CHICKENS, COUNT, AND TAKE PHOTOS. WHAT THEY HAD NO PERMISSION TO DO, THEY DID BY FORCE.

Search warrant served. ceo and sheriff deputy. To search the premises for chickens and count them. I asked why count, as I have never violated the agreement to not exceed 102 chickens and it is irrelevant to the charges of keeping chickens (fabricated through the spite law of 2007). But the ceo stated that they would only look at the coups unless I did not show them where - otherwise they would search the entire premises. They did what they stated. See the search warrant here.
