Outdoor Noise / Nuisance Noise (Chapter 80-60 thru 80-74)
Citizens may call in and complain about loud noise. Types of noises may include loud music, air conditioners, any type of mechanical noise, factory noises, etc. Certain types of air traffic noises and railroad traffic noises are exempt, depending on the type of activity.
A temporary noise variance can be obtained for construction projects or festivals or other similar events which may have a tendency to exceed the noise limits.
Noise complaints handled by the Police Department include vehicular noises (while on a public right-of-way) and disturbing of the peace issues (boisterous individuals, fighting etc.).
