Background Discussion

Noise Ordinance No. 08-12 was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on March 26, 2008. The proposed amendments requested by the Building and Development Services Department will incorporate new provisions and specifics concerning the distinctions between certain types of noises producing vibration, the enforcement of any violation of the ordinance, and professional recommendations from acoustical consultants allowing for a more detailed and better explanation of terms. The proposed ordinance has been screened and vetted by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, the State Attorney's Office and Manatee County staff. It is now ready for a public hearing.

The County Attorney's Office is requesting permission to publish a Notice of Public hearing regarding proposed Ordinance No. 13-05 which consists of revisions to Ordinance 08-12, and anticipates that the County Attorney's Office will bring this matter forth before the Board for a public hearing and future consideration.
