Noise Ordinance Restriction in Downtown Glen Rose? (September 2009)

10 October 2009 at 4:55:21 PM

Saw this via Facebook from The Green Pickle.

UPDATE: As some of you have heard, the county will now start enforcing an 85 dB noise restriction for live music being played. This means The Pickle will have to stop playing music which will hurt our business.

I heard last week that there was someone near another place in Glen Rose that didn't like  music being played outside but didn't formally complain. I further understood, although I haven't tried to look for myself, that City of Glen Rose doesn't have a noise ordinance. Wonder if this is a state ordinance? Were I the Green Pickle, I'd go down to Town Hall and ask for the complaints that had come in about noise. I'm willing to bet there are none in writing.

Such a cute place. I think it adds charm to downtown and a variety, plus it adds an incentive for a night life in downtown Glen Rose. Don't know what the answer is, but I sure there is a compromise to be had.

UPDATE: Green Pickle would like people to turn out for the Monday City of Glen Rose Town Council meeting to make comments. Item 13 on the agenda is about

13.       Discuss guidelines and procedures for enforcing the state noise ordinance or developing a noise ordinance for the City.

from Facebook

WHAT WE WANT: There is a City Council Meeting on Monday, Oct. 12th at 5:30 PM. We will be there to voice our opinion over this matter. We would like our city council to take responsibility and protect our business. We have brought in so much money in sales tax and alcohol tax to the city, and they know our business is important. On top of that, we are helping to revive the historic downtown and offer a place for people to go so they don't have to drive to another city to do something fun. If the city refuses to take action, we will have to shut our doors. What we would like to see happen is for the city to allow an exception to the noise ordinance between the hours of 8pm-11pm on Friday and Saturday nights so that our bands can play. We do not believe this is unreasonable.

We need everyone's support in this! Please do not allow our business to go down because the city council won't protect our business! We have tried our hardest to bring something to the community that everyone enjoys and we would hate to shut it down because of forces out of our control.
