Elected officials in Todd County are working on creating an entertainment permit process after residents living near the Hillbilly Racing go-cart racetrack in Daysville have complained about noise late at night.
Residents living on Pete Wheeler Road sent a petition to Todd Fiscal Court last week, which was read by their representative, Magistrate Brent Spurlin.
Todd County Attorney Mac Johns says he will work with track owner David Porter and the residents to hopefully find a balance of allowing racers and fans to have a good time while also addressing the concerns of neighbors trying to sleep.
Porter says he's willing to accept regulations from the county on his track and he and Johns have looked at a permit ordinance Logan County has that would set boundaries on what could be done and when.
Porter says he's started races earlier this year to get done earlier than in past seasons, though he acknowledged one night of racing went passed 1 a.m. due to rain. The racetrack's website says there will be races on three Saturday nights in October and at least two times in November.
