The City May Fine You Up to $500 for Dog Poop on YOUR Lawn

According to an article in DNAinfo, “Lead sponsors Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35th) submitted an ordinance at this week’s City Council meeting that calls on property owners to police their lots daily to keep them free of dog poop — or else face fines of $50-$500.”

Allegedly, this is an attempt to address the increase in rats in the city. I would say that the spread of rodents is reflective of the politricks in Chicago. I digressed.

First of all, I don’t own any pets. Why should I have to pay for somebody else’s ignorance and disrespect?

Secondly, I live in the hood where disrespect and disregard for other people’s property are rampant.

Thirdly, this is some bull-poop if ever I read it. And other people think so, too.

This is just another way to get money from tax payers in an attempt to repair a budget crises that we, the taxpayers, did not create.
