Two Springfield aldermen are urging city residents to let Mayor Mike Houston know their feelings on a curfew on live outdoor music downtown.
Houston says he is imposing a 10:30pm limit on amplified outdoor music, so that it doesn’t become a late-night nuisance to people living down there. But the decision could jeopardize downtown festivals like SOHO, which traditionally run as late as midnight.
Aldermen Cory Jobe and Doris Turner… appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show”… says community input, rather than a confrontation with the City Council, may be the best way to get the mayor to reconsider.
