Government: Commission gets earful on city noise ordinance Arthur Schmidt sounded off on sound Tuesday night at an abbreviated meeting of the Lawrence City Commission. Schmidt, who lives in the 2500 block of Harper, told commissioners he was constantly bothered at home by passing vehicles with loud stereos. He asked the commission to ban the stereos. “I’m sick and tired of it,” Schmidt said. “I’m going to harp on it until we get something done.” Assistant City Manager Dave Corliss said a 2-year-old city ordinance passed at Schmidt’s behest fines drivers $50 for playing stereos so loud they can be heard more than 50 feet away. A more restrictive ordinance might be difficult to enforce, Corliss said. “There’s limitations to the laws we can adopt,” Corliss said. He said he would notify the police of problems in Schmidt’s neighborhood. __________________________________ Literature: Public reading of ‘Moby Dick’ scheduled today at KU A whale of an event is scheduled to begin today at Kansas University.
