UPDATE: THE VILLA PARK MEETING WAS CANCELLED. We were informed they cannot pass the ordinance. There is a clause in city law that prevents them from doing this. Please try and contact whoever you invited to attend.

Fwded message from CAPS Chicago Campaign Coordinator Ida McCarthy:
Ban Sale of Dogs and Cats Ordinance - Villa Park, IL — Monday, August 13th at 7:30pm CDT
NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOLKS!!! We are on the agenda at the next Villa Park council meeting on August 13th at 7:30pm (CDT). It's an open meeting and anyone can attend and speak.
We are trying to ban the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores, in flea markets, parking lots and farmers markets. It would be great to see some Villa Park residents speak up, so please if you know anyone in Villa Park who would be willing to just stand up and say "I support the ordinance" that would be great!
You only have 3 minutes to speak I believe, and just that one sentence would be fine. It's all about HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOW UP TO SUPPORT THIS. It would be the FIRST city in Illinois. Let's make some history :)
Meeting will be held at the Villa Park Municipal Bldg, 20 S. Ardmore Ave, Villa Park, which is about 10 minutes from the Oak Brook Mall. It's a small brick bldg next to the Police Dept. Park in the Jewel lot across the street, as the Municipal Center has a small parking lot.
