WHO IS TO SAY WHAT’S TOO LOUD?

SHARE WHO IS TO SAY WHAT’S TOO LOUD?

On Saturday, Sept. 23, a there was an outdoor concert at Crandall Audio in North Orem on State Street. It was shut down because it was too loud.

What is too loud? Orem and Orem police don't know. Orem has no noise ordinance. A whisper can be too loud if more than two people complain. So a bunch of kids trying to have some fun in Orem were told to turn it off - not down - or be arrested because some people were complaining.No wonder gangs are getting more prevalent; instead of seeing local kids play and watch some music they have to roam the streets causing damage.

There were at least six police cars there to stop the noise. On Friday, my father's fruit stand was robbed by two men on foot of nearly $1,000. Gang members? I don't know. One police car came, wrote a report and left. Did they have six police cars searching the neighborhood for these two thugs? No way.
