To City Council:
Get the late night noise issue figured out already

To The Editor:
(SNOHOMISH, WA.) -- Only in Snohomish do councilmembers refuse to legislate and then place the blame on the city attorney.
For over two years the city council has failed to produce a viable solution to nighttime noise nuisances from commercial businesses. The loud late night and early morning activities of Fred Meyer, Home Depot, Haggen, Safeway, and the Post Office continue to adversely affect residents’ lives.
It is no surprise that the affected residents, who are left in the role of enforcement officers, live outside the favored Historic District where the mayor and most of the councilmembers reside.
Rather than modeling the codes of surrounding cites which effectively handle commercial noise issues, Snohomish continues its long tradition of government impotence.
The council and mayor need to forgo the excuses and contribute to a solution post-haste.
