Proposal to the City of Austin Includes a 'Bad Actor Program'

No, it's not what you think. Here's one from the "toolbox" of proposals of the newly constituted 'Austin Music Commission' of the City of Austin as reported by Arden Ward at on November 13:

Bad Actor Program
In addition to the rewards and assistance programs outlined for the toolbox, the proposal also includes a Bad Actor Program to add further accountability to music venues in violation of established ordinances. The program "includes specific penalties, up to and including revocation of OMV licenses, for venues that repeatedly violate their Sound Impact Plan or have a chronic pattern of citations for sound ordinance violations from APD."

Maybe the live music people could retitle this one, out of consideration for the live theatre people? Read more at culturemap:
