To The Daily Sun,
This is a request for voter support of Article 23 at the Moultonborough Town Meeting.
Article 23 requests a modest reduction in the permissible hours for all regulated noise as currently defined in the Town's Noise Ordinance.
As the ordinance already defines fireworks and what other activities create excessive noise, this proposed article does not in any way change those definitions. All it does is reduce the hours when such noises will be allowable. The new hours would be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. On July 4th there would be extended hours for fireworks.
I do hope the voters will consider that the very early morning and late evening usage of chain saws, leaf blowers, fireworks, etc. is unnecessary and that this article should be adopted.
