For as much business that is brought into st charles on the south end and north end does help the community. I have been the DD for those late night people. I am sober and in my late 40s. I have witnessed the police almost harrassing those in their 20's. I understand they have to have control but, now with this new law i can see how the city of st charles will use their authority for fines and revenue. And place a stupid charge on a young college kids record. Study the spreadsheet the article is very misleading on what is happening on north main!

How is it misleading? Do the police report differently for South and North Main? Are there fewer incidences reported on North Main?

In my opinion it shows the police are doign their job and helping to temper a certain atmosphere at closing time that is appropriate. I would like to hear what some of those who where stopped by the police say. Come to the forum and speak.

I've never understood why very, very loud motorcycles are not banned on the Main St - or anywhere near it - in this otherwise peaceful venue. The roaring thunder could better be relegated to the interstates, and let us have a few hours of quiet as we visit the past as St. Charles has done a good job maintaining.
