At the May 18 council meeting Dar-
lene Bayes, a very upset Strathmore
Page 11 resident, made a presentation to coun-
cil regarding the newly opened night
club COOTERS at the Wheatland Inn.
Bayes said there have been a number of
complaints about sleep being disrupted
due to Strathmore’s new nightclub. The
noise levels have kept neighbouring
residents awake.
“It’s just not working,” said Bayes,

can do.”
“The only thing I’m aware of that we
can do is, try to enforce the noise by-
Page 23 law. I don’t know if there’s anything
else that we can do in order to interfere
or whatever with what they are doing
there,” said Deputy Mayor John Rempel.
Bayes said when the bar has a live
band it’s not as bad, and is tolerable,
but when they have a DJ in there, it’s
unbearable. She also has concerns
about COOTERS wanting to open an
outdoor patio.

said Councillor Bob Sobol.
“We don’t have a magic wand to make
these places disappear. There are regu-
lations and rules of what commercial
businesses have to do to get a license.
They’ve complied, and if they choose to
be in violation of the bylaws then it be-

fried options and many specials that are guaranteed to please

of Omega 3 and has a number of other health benefits.
Joey’s offers more than just fish, they have Wing-it
