CATCH also did a good job covering this as well

Key quote from their coverage "Any citizen can make a written request to speak to any council committee - although not to a full council meeting. It's rare that they are turned down, although that is permitted by council's rules of procedure. Most requests are from business representatives seeking exceptions or modifications to city rules respecting their property."

CATCH also points out that other cities that have changed bylaws to allow backyard hen raising include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and for Canadian precedent, Vancouver.

The councilor's refusal to hear a citizen would appear to do more with them being a citizen and not a business as there is really no good reason to outright dismiss the delegation.
