Jefferson City considers revising noise ordinance

Oct 15, 2012

Jefferson City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss a proposed noise ordinance Monday.

The proposed noise ordinance limits sound levels in both commercial and industrial zones, as well as in residential areas. The ordinance contains limits that specify maximum noise levels for both day and night. Ralph Bray, Fifth Ward City Council member, said the proposed ordinance will be beneficial because it establishes a way to measure noise levels efficiently.
