Noise is a hot topic once
again. We just heard from Nancy Smith with the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce, who opposes the proposed updates
to the county noise code.
County Commissioners are looking for a way to crack down on noise nuisances
in the county. Nancy Smith with the Leavenworth Chamber opposes the changes, saying they are too vague and could
impact business and chamber events.
But listener Werner Janssen opposes the noise code update for an
entirely different reason. Janssen wants the county to crack down on Vacation Home Rentals, and he says the noise
ordinance is an ineffectual tool for that goal. The following piece is a listener commentary, and does not
necessarily reflect the views of KOHO Radio.
