What is the noise policy for Cornelius? When is it a problem?
The Town's "Noise Ordinance" covers a wide range of different sound reproducing devices that could be perceived as excessively disturbing and unreasonable. Some of the areas covered by the ordinance are mechanical devices, animals, any sound amplification device such as radios or public address systems, discharging of firearms or other exploding devices. Upon receiving a noise complaint, the police department sends an officer to evaluate the cause of the disturbance. After determining whether or not a violation is occurring, the officer will take action to correct the problem. This may include a written warning or Town citation for the offense.
