City Council to address citizen complaints

A variety of citizen complaints including loose animals, minibikes and ambient noise will be the focus of a work session Thursday by City Council. At the roundtable talk, council will mull over plans used by various other towns and cities across the state to keep what some consider to be annoyances under control. “We got some recommendations we’re looking over, as well as what other communities do,” City Councilman Larry Beckwith said. He said the idea behind the work session is to clarify the city’s laws regarding nuisances. “We need to identify the enforcement level on some of these things,” he said. On the noise issue, Beckwith said council was recently approached at a meeting by Steve Beham, owner of the Bayou Restaurant. Beham was wondering if the city’s noise ordinance would keep him from having musical acts in the relocated Bayou on Grand Avenue. Beckwith said it’s that type of question he wants to see answered. On the minibike issue, Beckwith said council is trying to determine where they are legal and where they aren’t. “We’re looking for more suggestions on what we should do to clarify these issues,” he said. The work session will be held at 5 p.m. today at City Hall, followed by a regular City Council meeting at 6:30.The work session will be held at 5 p.m. today at City Hall, followed by a regular City Council meeting at 6:30.
