Redballs Rock & Roll Pizza gets an airing at the Moorpark City Council

By Debra Tash

The Moorpark City Council nixed the golf tax after a review of the Moorpark Country Club’s financial statements.  The tax would give the already struggling golf course’s competitors even more of an edge.

The hottest topic at the meeting, however, wasn’t even on the agenda.  And it wasn’t anything the Council could address at this time.  Redballs Rock and Roll Pizza at 13816 Princeton Ave will have an administrative hearing with staff and the city attorney next week.  The City has been receiving complaints against the venue of loud disruptive noise.  Fans come from as far away as Carson to hear rockers play.  There were a great many of those fans at the Council meeting tonight, speaking at Public Comments on how much they enjoy the venue and coming to Moorpark.  They noted that they bring commerce to the city, mentioning just how much gas they buy locally to get back to where they live.  A handful of residents, who must have gotten their cards in late, were the last to speak.  They testified how they can hear the music inside their homes, even when the windows are closed.  And though they admit the train that passes through Moorpark in the evening is louder, it only lasts two minutes while most of the concerts can be going for up to three hours.  One rocker who plays the venue said that rock and roll is loud and if you take that away it just “ain’t” rock and roll.  Then he volunteered to donate acoustical material for the venue’s walls. Let’s hope Redballs Rock and Roll Pizza can work out their problem with the neighbors.  After all, from what the patrons said, the food is supposed to be as good as the music.
