Bend's City Manager says he was surprised by the recent closing of the Century Center, on Bend's westside.
 
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."
 
He says the new council will talk about the noise ordinance changes in January or February after several newly elected council members are up to speed.
 
The city will also choose its new mayor during the upcoming January 16th meeting.
