In Wednesday night's Bend City Council work session, a report on changes to the City Noise Ordinance brought up a lot of discussion. Bend Police Captain Ken Stenkamp says the ordinance passed in spring of 2012 seems to be working well, especially the new program where people who plan to have an event that will deemed to be "noisy" must submit a kind of a "noise permit".

 

"The idea behind the notification really is to let the neighbors know this is going to be happening your neighborhoods, and so they will be aware. It doesn't necessarily have anything to so with denial of it, it's just to arm them with the knowledge that something's going to happen. So that they aren't surprised by it, and if they do hear a loud noise, they know what the source is."

 

Stenkamp said they are proposing some refinements to the ordinance that will try to eliminate any ambiguity, especially when it comes to decibel levels and time limits.

 

Wesley Ladd- owner of the "Horned Hand," a local bar and music venue asks that police be armed with a decibel reading meter - so that any loud music complaint could be proven.
