"City" piece on Portland's ordinance prohibiting sounds of 50 decibels or more after 10 P.M. The ordinance includes a provision that enforcement would come only after a complaint, and there haven't been any infractions so far. Portland City Councilor Dick Paulson, the only councilor to vote against the ordinance, believes the ordinance was passed to deal with The Garage, the now-defunct dance club that bothered its neighbors in the Morrill's Corner area. The ordinance remains in effect, and can be activated anytime a complaint is registered. Details.
