Input Wanted: Restricted Breed Ordinance

Monday night offers one more chance to weigh in on restricted breed ordinance
Ahead of the vote next week by the Aurora City Council on Monday, Aug. 17, there is another opportunity to provide public input on the city's Restricted Breed Ordinance, Section 14-75 of the Aurora Municipal Code.

The City Council is considering whether to retain or repeal the ordinance and whether a repeal should occur via City Council ordinance or public vote. We want to make sure you have a say in it.

Given COVID-19 limitations for public gatherings, the meeting will take place virtually, with two ways for the public to participate: by submitting comments via email and/or by providing live comments via telephone during the Aug. 17 meeting.

Call-in participation. You can provide live comments during the City Council meeting via telephone. The number to call for the meeting (855-695-3475, then press *3 to reach operator) will be open beginning at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 17 (the meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.) for people to be placed in the queue. Callers can be placed in the queue from 7 p.m. until the City Clerk formally introduces the agenda item for consideration by the City Council. All callers will have up to 3 minutes to share their opinion.

**When calling 855-695-3475, please indicate the restricted breed related agenda item for which you would like to provide comment.

Email comments. Between now and 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 14, you can send an email to [email protected] with your comments. Those comments will be printed, given to Council Members and made part of the public record. Comments sent via email won't be read during the City Council meeting to allow time for the call-in participants.
