King George Supervisors earlier this month reviewed elements that are expected to be considered for inclusion in a proposal for a new noise ordinance. The next report on a new noise ordinance is not expected to take place until early November, when Sheriff Steve Dempsey agreed to provide some additional information regarding decibel meter readings and complaint history, including such things as whether the bulk of complaints took place at night, and enforcement success rates from surrounding counties with such ordinances.
EXISTING NOISE ORDINANCE UNENFORCEABLE
A new noise ordinance is needed because Supervisors were informed over the summer by Matt Britton, county attorney, that the existing noise ordinance is completely unenforceable. The current ordinance is based on the “reasonable person standard.”
