Public gets voice in Langley noise rules

Residents and businesses can speak their piece about a nightlife and noise ordinance in Langley, next week.

The rules were originally drafted in response to complaints residents had about Mo’s Pub and Eatery. It resulted in a rule for six permitted amplified performances.

That rule ran into a snag when owner Maureen Cooke was allowing amplified music she claimed was quiet enough that it should be OK, though it was technically violating the ordinance.

A hearing on a proposal to amend the ordinance is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at Langley City Hall. The changes include allowing amplified music until 8:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 p.m. on weekends, as long as it can not be heard from neighboring property lines.
