Surprised Siebring hadn’t been out to hear noise

Re: Two-day public hearing on race track expansion application.

I found Mayor Siebring’s admission that he had never personally observed the excessive noise from the existing facility extremely surprising. Given that the noise complaints have been going on since 2016, and Siebring was a councillor and now mayor and has voted in favour of the expansion, one would expect him to be proactive enough to at least take his lawn chair over to any place in Satlam and sit for a few hours and listen to the din. I can plainly hear the noise from the track on the south side of Gibbins Road, it doesn’t bother me but if I lived in Satlam it surely would.
