JC Noise Ordinance Passes
It has been an ongoing feud between those living around the North Roan Street area and a nightclub. Residents in the Tanglewood neighborhood say the noise from the Electric Cowboy is just too much to handle. Johnson City officials recently voted on a new ordinance that uses a measuring system to target certain types of low frequency noises that they say are commonplace with clubs and venues that host music. Johnson City Police will have special equipment to measure the sound ready to use within weeks. Violating the new code will cost $50 per citation. The ordinance passed after three successful readings.
