Three cheers for peace, quiet

Sandra Gentry

Dear Editor,

I was excited and jumping for joy when I heard that a noise ordinance was approved at the last city council meeting to rid our town of the obnoxious modified mufflers and for those that are cruising our streets with no mufflers or rusted-out ones. These cars are still out there and I am wondering why. The city limits of Glenwood are not that large and I never see a patrol car in sight.

I can’t tell you how many times I have passed by the police department and seen four to six patrol cars parked. I am very disappointed that our police department is not being aggressive with this new ordinance that should have been in place years ago.

I was also excited with thoughts of sitting outside this summer with some peace and quiet and no rattling of our windows and china cabinets while we are trying to relax inside our home.

Only time will tell, I guess. Thank you to the editors of GSPI for your editorials on this subject that was going to be presented at that city council meeting.
