Some Wichita residents are complaining about the noise and odor of a Mexican-flavored rodeo held weekly near 37th Street North and Broadway. City Council members Tuesday should approve a proposed short-term moratorium on rodeos, from July 9 to November, to give them time to wrestle with new regulations.
Beyond the “noise, odors and other nuisances” related to the events, a city briefing cites “significant health and safety concerns to participants, spectators and adjacent neighborhoods.”
City officials should ensure they have fair, adequate rules in place that shield nearby residents from undue suffering without running rodeo lovers out of town.
