Mistake on Decibel Reading Location
In New Live Music Ordinance
Update – I have just received word back, from a very reliable source, that the City Council has realized, today, that the inclusion of the amendment, quoted below, was, as I had hoped and suspected, a mistake.
“The decibel limits prescribed under this section must be measured … from the location of the sound equipment on the property or site where the permit is issued.”
A correction is not yet on the Draft Agenda for next week’s Feb 17 Council meeting, but I suspect that it will appear shortly. Draft agendas are subject to change without notice.
I couldn’t believe the suggestion, when I read it in the DANA group’s letter to the Mayor and Council. I really couldn’t believe my eyes, at 3 AM, this morning, when I finally got a chance to pour through the final version of a document that was released only yesterday morning (!). Very curious as to just how this inclusion occurred. I don’t think, for a minute, that the only two occurrences of this silliness that I observed, are unrelated.
