The Aurora Plan Commission voted Thursday, Jan. 31, to recommend an animal nuisance provision be added to Aurora City Code.
But the commission took no formal action on a proposed amendment
which would have permitted 4-H members to raise small livestock
within city limits. Aurora Councilman and plan commission president Joe Milish has since withdrawn the proposal, according to city attorney Jeff Stratman.
The nuisance provision would set a fine of $25 to $100 for anyone
whose animal creates a noise, odor or other nuisance. Aurora City
Council would have to approve the provision for it to become city
law, but cancelled a special meeting to follow the 5 p.m. Aurora Utilities
Board meeting Monday, Feb. 4, in city hall, Third and Main streets. Council's next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in city hall, Third and Main streets.
Plan commission did not act on a third proposal which would have outlawed the keeping of wild or exotic animals in the city. The amendment, proposed by Stratman, focused on dangerous animals but also included non-native snakes and reptiles.
