Will I be cited for a violation of the noise ordinance?
Circumstances of each violation will dictate whether a resident is cited. For instance, if your residence has previously been warned for a noise violation, chances are high that you will receive a citation. If the noise violation, in the opinion of the officer, is egregious, chances are you will receive a citation, even if you have never been warned.
