The Carrabelle city commission said a local pub has broken no laws with weekend entertainment.

On Jan. 9, Ted Brodley, owner of a vacation home in the Pirate’s Landing development on Timber Island , appeared before the Carrabelle commission to complain about noise from the Fish Camp Restaurant adjacent to his condominium.

Brodley said he has owned his Pirates Landing condominium since 2010 and fished in the area since 1999. He told commissioners the restaurant plays loud music until after 1 a.m. on weekend nights.

“It’s pretty unbearable. My air conditioning vents vibrate because the bass is so loud,” he said.

Brodley said a number of tenants had complained to the manager about the noise, and even called the police, but nothing had been done to solve the problem.

Police Chief Craig Kincaid said the only record he could find of a complaint to the Carrabelle police was one made by Brodley.
