Organizers of the Sturgis North Motorcycle Rally came under fire from city council Monday over a request for noise bylaw extensions on the Salmon Arm Fall Fairgrounds.
Couns. Ken Jamieson and Alan Harrison did not hesitate to state their feelings and concerns about Sturgis North, and the request put forward by organizer Steve Hammer at Monday’s council meeting for noise bylaw extensions on the fairgrounds.
“In my mind, it’s quite obvious that they’ve just jumped the gun and planned an event without a venue to hold it at,” commented Harrison. “And now they’re in a pickle. And now they’re coming to council, and council feels pressured because, what’s going to happen? So I don’t appreciate being put into that position.”
