Aurora pays $10,000 for bird cleanup at hoarder's home
The Aurora City Council on Tuesday night authorized a $10,975 payment for bird removal this fall from a townhouse where a man had been hoarding hundreds of birds.
Restoration Techs of Batavia was part of a cleanup effort that removed about 325 live birds and 120 dead ones from the property on the 200 block of Shadybrook Lane.
David Skeberdis, who collected the birds at his home, has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of companion animal hoarding. He is next due in DuPage County court Jan. 29.
