Sound Off: Loud event
What was the noisy party at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on April 26, from about 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.? How come those things are allowed to go on?
The event was a dance party organized by Life in Color — the same group that organized the Color Run in October. County officials gave the group permission to hold the event, said Bill Bell, director of maintenance for the fairgrounds, without realizing how loud the music would be. The organizers turned down the volume at the request of officials after nearby residents complained of the noise.
