TRUSSVILLE — During public comment at a city council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020, a resident stood to speak about loud noise coming from the stage in the middle of downtown Trussville.
“This noise has become an intrusion on the quality of our Trussville neighborhood,” said the citizen. “The noise is an all-day event with sporting events during the day and bands at night.”
The resident, who lives over a mile away from the stage area, said he wants the city to correct the problem because he can hear it from his house.
Mayor Buddy Choat responded by agreeing the volume coming from the stage was excessive last Friday.
“It was so loud, I rolled my window down and I couldn’t do it,” Choat said. “The excessive noise was extremely too high.”
Trussville Police also received several calls last Friday about the noise.
Choat said he alerted Ferus Artisan Ales owner Coby Lake and Lake told him he would address the issue.
The stage area is owned by the city and is part of the new Trussville Entertainment District, also known as “the TED.”
