Welcome to Rohnert Park, where city hall passed an ordinance that if you have more then 10 people in your house with loud music you get a citation called a "120". When given a 120 you are not allowed to make any sort of noise for a 120 days. If you do make noise you will get a fine up to 500 dollars. Well in the city of Rohnert Park is Sonoma State University, which makes this a college town. However, they refuse to let college kids have an experience at all. This city municipal code is very clearly directed towards college kids. Worse off it is very bias towards college kids and the policy is profiled towards them. Adults and neighbors throw parties all over Rohnert Park and when they receive a noise complaint the police kindly tell them to keep the volume down. However, if the police see any sign of college kids you are automatically subject to a 120 fine. There are very nice handling 120s it is just department policy to hand them out college kids. Most of the time the police do not even look to see if there are more than 10 people if they hear any type of music playing you will get a citation. Even if they do not agree with giving the 120 they still do not wanna go against department policy, so they have no choice but to force a 120 fine on college students. Many of us are astounded a city is allowed to pass a law allowing this must discrimination towards an age group and actually allowed to silence someones entire house for a 120 days. The city takes advantage of college kids and gives nothing back. I am a member in a fraternity and I am not allowed to meet anywhere off campus because of the risk getting a 120. Therefore it is extremely hard to even get together with the 60 fraternity members if it is against city law to have more then 10 people at a gathering. We need the help we can get in order to remove 120s from Sonoma State, otherwise the city will continue to fine college students without any restrictions. We would love to work to a resolution in which both parties will benefit, but the first step is for city council to be aware of the problem.
