DEAR MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL
To say I was disappointed on Monday night would be a giant understatement. You would have to add disgusted, discouraged, and disrespected to the list of adjectives just to get in the ballpark. It was clear that some of the Council members had prepared and done their homework and it was also clear that others never planned to because they had their minds made up from the start. The term compromise was thrown around at the end of the vote. It is apparent that many of the members of council have been compromised and are not able to think through the problem with the kind of clarity and objectivity required to make policy.
I have attached a video from the Peter Frampton/Steve Miller Band concert last night at the Ford Center. The music was so loud and I was curious what the decibels were so I measured, astonishing. The bands were playing at 75 decibels, which you can see in the video, the song I recorded average d72 Db. What City Council has passed now puts the Evansville Police Department in the position of having to scream over the offending noise to tell the complainer that the noise is under the legal limits allowed. Seriously, when you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. We still have a very big problem.
As I have mentioned in the past, I am not a politician and don’t understand the games you all play with each other, but I do understand that Disturbing the Peace is never okay and the citizens of Evansville deserve Quiet and Peaceful Enjoyment in their own homes. I have no idea where you go from here, but I believe you have only made the issue worse.
