BACKGROUND

On October 5, 2020, the City Council passed an updated noise ordinance, which included increased fines, as well as establishment of decibel and plainly audible thresholds. At that time, the Police Department and City Council agreed that a 6-month review would be conducted to evaluate the changes and effectiveness of the new ordinance. Based on input from City Council, members of the community, and city staff, the following new recommendations are being presented.

                     Continue with current fine fields
