The City of Bend is holding a special meeting tonight to explain changes to the City's noise code, and in some extreme cases violators could face a fine of $10,000. City Recorder Robyn Christie says they are trying to deal with many popular events in the city; that may not be too popular with neighbors trying to relax in their nearby homes. "One thing we want to do is make sure the ordinance is clear so that neighbors know what the expectations are, as well as businesses. We want to make sure that neighbors aren't disturbed in their homes after 10 o'clock, but we also want businesses to have successful events."  Christie says the fines for a noise violation will start at $750 and graduate up to $10,000 for a flagrant and chronic violator. Tonight's Open House is at City Hall from 4 to 6 p.m. Council members are expected to vote on these changes during their May 16th meeting.
