On Aug. 7, the city re-adopted its noise ordinance to comply with the provisions of House Bill 419. The bill was authored by Rep. Deborah Silcox, R-Sandy Springs. Its purpose was to allow local governments to regulate the use of fireworks.
The ordinance contained language that prohibited construction-related noise, but Dan Lee, the city attorney for Sandy Springs, deemed that the language was open for interpretation. Lee recommended the city amend and clarify the ordinance.
Under the updated rules, construction of any type will only be allowed 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Construction won’t be allowed on Sundays or holidays.
In addition to construction, the time restrictions also apply to people using loud lawn equipment, like grass mowers and leaf blowers.
