City aims for quiet nights

If passed, ordinance would go into effect March 6

The Shelton City Council on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to new and amended noise ordinances that would outlaw repetitive squealing tires, revving car engines, continuous noise from pets and off-hours construction.

The council can make the new noise laws and amendments official by granting final approval at its March 1 meeting.

The city's current noise

ordinances were adopted in 2006. The council discussed the proposed additions and changes Nov. 23 at a study session.

The laws are aimed at decreasing noise in residential areas between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. The noise must be

"plainly audible"...
