Proposed noise ordinance shifts to zoning panel
Thursday, August 23, 2012
As a proposed noise ordinance moves through the city, at least one resident is looking for answers on how the noise levels are measured.
At the Jefferson City Council Committee on Administration meeting Wednesday, staff again discussed a proposed new noise ordinance, which would establish a measurable way of determining when a resident or business is in violation of the noise ordinance.
Public Works Director Roger Schwartze took a sound level meter and measured various city noises to help establish the limits in each zoning classification.
