Neighbors bothered by loud noises from nearby aquatic park

By By Mitch Freeman Madison County Record
Residents who live in the Edgewater community want the noise level turned down in the adjacent Madison Aquatic Park.
In other business, residents who live in the Edgewater community addressed the council regarding rock concert noise from adjacent Madison Aquatic Park.
Charles Morris, another Edgewater homeowner, said property values in the community could drop and the loud noise could present personal health problems with hearing. Another resident said with window and doors closed, it still sounded like the concert was going on inside his home.
Councilwoman Cynthia McCollum said the council is very sympathetic to Edgewater residents' concerns and didn't know there was a problem until the residents came before the council.
Rod Wheeler, president of Rock Divers, is contracted by the city to operate the aquatic park. He said he wants to work with Edgewater residents to resolve the issue and that a sound engineer was going to look into the problem.
The city's contract with Rock Divers is up for renewal and McCollum said the council would be looking to modify the contract to resolve the problem.
