Cairo- Grady County commissioners are putting the brakes on a request from motocross track owners.

     The owners of the tracks requested noise variances which would allow dirt bikes to operate above 75 decibels. Grady residents had complained that allowing them to do that would disrupt their home life.

     Chairman Bobby Burns says the commission voted "no" because of the variances' lack of specifics. "They just asked for a variance on the noise level. So if we had granted the variance as it was submitted, then they would be right back to where they were, running at an unlimited noise level," he says.

     Burns adds that this matter is finished now, unless the track owners file suit or don't follow the ordinance as required.
