Council to Discuss City’s options to Reduce Noise from Cars

The City has been receiving an increasing number of complaints about loud noise from vehicles on the City roads.
At this week’s meeting, the Council will discuss City’s options to reduce noise from cars.
Staff is recommending the following options
(a) Use City Code against loud noise coming from vehicles on the property: The City Code, Chapter 138, Noise, does not apply to moving vehicles. This Chapter, however, does and has been applied to noise generated by vehicles on an identifiable property. Under these conditions, a property owner is held responsible for noise from any source which violates the code limits, including loud vehicles on that property.
(b) Modified Exhaust:  Police will issue equipment repair orders when they stop a vehicle with a modified exhaust. These orders require the restoration of vehicle exhaust systems to factory specifications.
(c) Speed enforcement: Police also issue citations for speeding, which often occurs simultaneously when drivers are demonstrating loud exhausts. City automated speed enforcement cameras issue speeding citations,
(d) Premise checks of rallying locations: City Contract Police will continue to conduct high visibility premise checks at known rallying locations for modified vehicle groups within the City.
