New Law Would Nix Night Noise In Newington
Want to mow your lawn past 9pm? Roll the trash cans down the driveway? There may be fines for that.
Newington likes to keep their area on hush, and there might be a new law to enforce night time peace and quiet. According to Seacoast Online, “loud, unusual or other unnecessary noise” between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m might be deemed violation worthy after a public meeting next Monday.
Fines would range from $50 - $150 for noise cited in the proposal like vehicles “peeling rubber,” blowing vehicle horns, running a lawnmower, handling trash cans, and operating construction equipment.
As reported by Seacoast Online, The proposed ordinance would make it “unlawful for any person to make, continue or cause to be made or continued any excessive, unnecessarily loud noise or any noise which either annoys, disturbs, injures or is likely to endanger the comfort, repose, health, peace or safety of others within the town limits.”
So, if you want to rattle your recycling bin without repercussion, it's suggested you show up to the Town Hall Monday at 6pm in order to be heard. Police Chief Michael Bilodeau said Monday’s meeting is a time to “let the people vote.”
