BEACON – There is a concern among some Beacon city officials that its current noise ordinance is not sound enough.
City Council members are considering the hiring of a consultant to study the current law and recommend upgrades, said Mayor Randy Casale.
“You can’t just go with a decibel meter and stand at one place,” the mayor said. “You’re supposed to go to two or three different spots, so many feet at the property line at different angles to get the total noise decibels to make a determination.”
The cost of the study would be $9,500 plus expenses.
