Greg Brady- Chicago city councilman

city in the Chicago suburbs is regulating how long a dog can bark.

Aurora has approved a new “excessive noise” law. If a dog barks for more than 15 minutes at a time between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. the owner could get a $100 ticket.

Neighbors would need to make recordings or find multiple witnesses to report a violation.

The city is also limiting how many cats or dogs a household can have as pets at one time.

The new law limits a family to have 4 pets and only 2 of one type without approval from the city’s animal control agency. Ferret, rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters fall under the same rules.

Jebus crites people are ninny’s. You know when my dog barks for that long? When someone is doing nefarious shit in our neighborhood.

Our city council love love loves passing bylaws.

My city councillor doesn’t like me very much. She gets a lot of emails and phone calls from me when our city council passes more stupid bylaws. She won’t even come to my house anymore to talk when it’s time to run.

Aurora is 40 miles from Chicago.

A dog barking for 14mins straight is totally normal?

Thanks for clearing that up, dora

Or reading a water meter, or working on someone’s deck or a squirrel is looking at them funny

You’re the dumb dickhead who put Chicago in the title.

It’s not Chicago, it’s Aurora.
