Miner board again faced with loud music complaints

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

MINER -- It's an old story in Miner: some want to party loud and late; others would like to sleep in peace and quiet that time of night.

Loud music late at night from the latest business to set up shop in the building where J.D.'s, the Double Nickel and other nightclubs have entertained nightlife for over 20 years is again resulting in the city receiving complaints.

During their regular monthly meeting Tuesday, the Miner Board of Alderman agreed to try using a decibel meter to determine an acceptable volume for music coming from the establishment.

"That's definitely a way to pursue that," said City Attorney Joe Fuchs.

"It boils down to peace disturbance," Miner Police Chief Chris Griggs said. "We've got complaint after complaint on the music."

But he is unclear how the Board wants him to address the problem.
