Bethlehem adopts noise ordinance

Resident John Laforte said he had a problem with the time constrictions as far as residential yard work, saying someone would be in violation of the ordinance if they mowed their lawn or cleared the snow from their driveway at night.

Cunningham pointed out a person would only be in violation during daytime hours if the lawnmower was over 65 dBA, and that snow-blowers are exempt at any time.

"As a matter of fact, if you want to come and snow blow my driveway at 3 a.m., I won't come out and complain," said Cunningham.
