The City of Glens Falls Building and Codes Committee is in the process of reviewing the City’s Noise Ordinance. The Committee is seeking comments and concerns from both residents and those who work within the City of Glens Falls.
“Any changes to the noise ordinance will have to be measurable and objective" says Ward 3 Councilwoman Diana Palmer. “While we will be looking at other communities for examples, we want to make sure we are crafting an ordinance unique to our city and the needs of our residents.”
“Chapter 45 of the City Charter entitled ‘Prohibited Noise’ (https://ecode360.com/14409121#14409121) only addresses a limited number of situations as it stands and relates to ‘noise’” states Justin Reckner, the City’s Code Enforcement Officer. “If any situation arises above and beyond the limited language within the code, we can’t really do much if a situation becomes a persistent problem.”
So, the Building and Codes Committee is inviting everyone who lives and works in the City of Glens Falls to complete this Noise Ordinance survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GFNoiseOrdinance. The feedback provided will be reviewed and discussed in the next Building and Codes meeting on March 27 beginning at 1pm on the 2nd Floor of City Hall.
