“Sound-blocking fence” at Kipp still does not block sound!

“Sound-blocking fence” at Kipp still does not block sound!

A year later, it remains a puzzle how this piddly wooden fence is considered a “sound-blocking” fence by the City of Madison when it obviously just does not block sound! See our previous story. The City of Madison gave Madison-Kipp Corp. $55,000 worth of rent credit to erect this fence to reduce noise that neighbors hear. That’s right, the City owns some of the land at the Kipp factory and yes, they gave them rent credit–the equivalent of giving them free rent– for a useless, non-sound blocking fence.
