Casino's shows are noise pollution

How can the Snoqualmie Tribe justify being able to pollute our lovely Valley with ear-splitting music from their outdoor concerts two and three times a week?

They plan on continuing this all summer long. Our complaints have fallen on deaf ears. The first response from the casino was, “We are a sovereign nation and can do whatever we want.”

Our suggestion of reversing the speakers away from the Valley was also ignored. Both the Snoqualmie and King County police say they have no jurisdiction. As tax-paying citizens of the Snoqualmie Valley for more than 40 years; it seems unfair that we appear to have no rights.

If the Snoqualmie Tribe truly wants to be good neighbors; they will do something about this noise polution. If they truly don’t care about the homeowners in the Valley, perhaps our only recourse is to have the Valley boycott the casino. It sounds as if their only concern is profit.
