The Centennial City Council on Monday adopted a resolution supporting a new jail for Arapahoe County. The issue is on the ballot for the November 5 general election and will cause an increase in property taxes.
The issue was raised by Mayor Stephanie Piko, and the vote was unanimous. The motion was made by Councilman Ken Lucas, District 3, and was seconded by Ron Weidmann, District 4.
In other business, Councilwoman Candace Moon, District 1 and the only incumbent running for re-election in the November election, stated she supports an “increase in public education” regarding dangers of noise.”
Councilman Lucas said the city should not spend any more time on the noise issue, as he does not believe the city should try to regulate noise, as it appears there were only five net complaints regarding noise during a recent period of time.
Councilman Mike Sutherland, District 3, said that the number of complaints does not justify having an ordinance about noise. It appeared that the council was in agreement that there is no way to easily regulate noise in Centennial.
