“No more parties in L.A.”

It’s a Kanye West song and now it could be reality.

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved an ordinance on Thursday that will impose a series of escalating fines on homeowners and party hosts who throw disruptive ragers.

Hosts will now be subject to fines ranging from $100 for the first violation to $8,000 for the sixth and any subsequent violation, according to a Council release. It also requires those in violation to leave a posted public notice informing neighbors of their brush with the law for an entire month.

The motion was introduced by Councilman David Ryu — whose district involves the celebrity favorite Hollywood Hills — in June 2016. The City Attorney’s Office began drafting the ordinance three months later.

Party houses are notorious in the Hollywood Hills, where Airbnb homes abound and money isn’t an issue. In one instance, an elephant and unpermitted lion graced a Saudi prince’s graduation party.

Neighborhood groups from Hollywood, Bel-Air, Beverly Crest, Northridge East and Valley Village all supported the ordinance.
