My name is Liz Matthews. My husband and I live on the edge of the entertainment district with our backyard and deck facing Old Town Street.
For several months, the noise level, drinking and fighting that occurs in the city parking lot as a result of spill over from the bar there has escalated and is affecting the quality of life of the surrounding neighborhood. I have made multiple phone calls to Guntersville Police asking for their intercession. While the police do eventually respond, the activities begin again once they leave. No consistent patrols and/or officer dedicated to the city lot has been put into place as of the time of this letter.
