Editor,

Hi, I'm curious to know if, in your reporting about the music noise stuff, you gathered any info on current city laws about concerts like Centre of Gravity and excessive noise related to heavy bass or subwoofers?

Does the city not care if they give a permit to them and they boom and shake every house and resident for miles??

I live in a residential area miles away from downtown and can clearly hear the subwoofers and heavy bass during events for hours over a weekend. Complaining to a city noise officer does nothing, I get a "they have a permit" message.

Complaining to city council gets nothing. All this doesn't seem right. If I blasted a subwoofer and annoyed people for miles, pretty sure I'd be arrested or fined.

But a tax paying citizen who has no interest in music concerts and who I thought had a right to a peaceful and quiet place to live, doesn't have that right because the city issued a permit??

I'd love to know who to go with about this and show the city council and the mayor that the minority does not outweigh the majority. Especially when we're speaking about city tax payers here who shouldn't have to put up with having their peace and quiet taken away because the city wants to make a buck.

This is not the city I grew up in... It has changed, and doesn't care about the older crowd (who makes up a lot of this city).

The mayor has already lost my vote.
