Casper Noise Ordinances are Complicated

By  | 

CASPER, Wyo. Casper police say it is complicated because of different variables to the noise ordinance.

If someone is making loud noises through singing, playing loud music, or practicing in a band, they can be in violation of the noise ordinance.

This is it read as if it's disturbing anyone's peace or the health of a person they can be charged with disturbing the peace.

The other part of the ordinance deals with machinery and equipment.

"And there's actually decibels that are required that person has to exceed before they are in violation of that noise ordinance. And then it also depends on whether it's in a residential, commercial, or industrial area and the times of the day." Said Detective John Hatcher of the Casper Police Department.

He says the noise ordinance is different if you are commercially causing the nouse using machinery.

Then it depends on hours of the day and how loud it can be.
