In the closing, the people associated with local music spot cited concerns about changes tot he city's noise ordinance that went into effect this past summer. 
 
City manager Eric King was a recent guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town, heard at 8:40a each morning.
 
"I WAS ACTUALLY SURPRISED BY THAT- BECAUSE WE TOOK OUT TIME LAST YEAR TO INVOLVE EVENT PROMOTERS AND OTHERS ON BOTH SIDES TO INVOLVE THEM ON CHANGES TO THE NOISE ORDINANCE- BECAUSE WE HAD HEARD FROM NEIGHBORS- THAT THE NOISE ORDINANCE WASN'T WORKING- SO WE CHANGED IT- AND WE ACTUALLY RAISED THE DECIBLE LEVELS FROM THE EARLIER ORDINANCE- and MADE IT LESS RESTRICTIVE."
