Houston Defends Policies Toward Outdoor Festivals


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston insists he is not an opponent of street festivals and other outdoor events… despite his efforts to force them to shut down their live music at an earlier hour. 

 

Houston notes that he is providing free police protection at those large events… a change from past administrations which charged for the police presence. 

 

But the mayor still insists that there have been complaints about the noise from events like SOHO, and still thinks there needs to be some “reasonable” standard.  However, Houston has backed away from specifying what time he thinks the amps should be turned off… saying he now wants to work with aldermen to reach a consensus on the issue.
