Noise ordinance should be enforced

-A A +A

According to the Editorial in (last) Wednesday’s Optic, it seems that any existing noise and nuisance ordinances in Las Vegas should be, in a word, ignored at the time of the bike rally. The reason proffered is that the rally brings monies to Las Vegas and surrounding areas. Given this view, one wonders what other laws can be suspended or otherwise ignored provided monies are going into the city’s coffers?

I remain under the impression that we are a country and a city of laws and those ordinances and laws are to be enforced uniformly. There are better ways to manage or contain the bike rally noise in our residential neighborhoods besides disregarding the laws.
