Question: Why does the city owned equipment run all night? Don’t we have a noise ordinance that should keep that from occurring?



City owned equipment runs at any given time. Obviously, it is easy to understand why the snow removal equipment is out during a blizzard at 2:00 in the morning. However, often times a pipe project is running into the evening or the best time to clean the streets or vacuum out manholes is after hours when traffic is minimal. Public services, while exempt from the noise ordinance, makes every attempt to lessen the distraction.
