The new dog ordinance would be wonderful if it also applied to children. In our neighborhood, the only thing "barking, yelping, howling and whimpering in a manner that would disturb neighbors" are the kids. The neighborhood dogs are great. They don't do any vandalism and have perfect manners when they visit. Thank God for wintertime when the kids are holed up or we wouldn't have any peace and quiet at all.
