Petition to Alderman Sophia King

Extend Southtown Sub's Hours

Why is There a Change of Hours?In an effort to reduce loitering and allow for the creation of a safe passageway on 35th street where Southtown Sub is located, the City of Chicago along with Alderman Sophia King's office has asked businesses to reduce their hours to 10am-6pm. By reducing the hours, having security posted along the strip and 24-hour camera surveillance, the hope for a safer neighborhood is attainable. The IssueAlthough the other businesses that are abiding by this regulation are not restaurants that typically serve during the hours of breakfast, lunch and dinner, Southtown Sub respects and will oblige to what has been asked of them. It has come to our attention, however, that many of our patrons do not agree. What You Can Do to HelpWe would like to provide our patrons with a meaningful platform to show their support. We ask you to show Alderman King what Southtown Sub means to you. This petition asks Alderman King for a reasonable extension to Southtown Sub's hours to allow us to serve you better. We will never be open until 4 am again to improve the safety of our community. However, we are asking for support to extend the hours as follows: Daily: 10:00am-11:00pm Want To Do More?Reach out to the alderman's office and tell her how you feel. Note: You are an extension of who we are so we ask you to please remain professional and show the utmost courtesy and respect.

Lower the maximum temperature for which horse-drawn carriages are allowed to operate

As Mohandas K. Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." There is no reason horses in the city of Chicago should have to pull people around in 90 degree weather. It is 88 degrees outside today and there are horse-carriages everywhere. The city of Chicago's current regulation on horse-carriages is that they can operate when the temperature gets up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. I propose we lower the maximum temperature in which horse-carriages can operate to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a very reasonable request and it will help the animals out greatly. The city of Chicago needs to stop allowing these animals to suffer in the heat. There have been many instances where horses have died of heat stroke from hot summer heat and humidity. Horses may even suffer from dehydration. Horses can easily be overworked and this is even worse in very hot weather. Making horses carry heavy carriages around all day in hot weather borders animal abuse. The pavement gets much hotter than the air temperature. Horse's hooves will get damaged from the extremely hot temperatures of the pavement. Show you care by lowering the maximum temperature in which horse-carriages can operate in Chicago to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. We cannot condone animal cruelty in the city of Chicago.  Here are some links of incidents involving horse-carriages:
