Noise Ordinance Gets Big Tweaks 

Critics of the city’s new noise ordinance went away happy Wednesday night after a host of changes were approved to the law passed last July.

The Bend City Council members unanimously approved the following changes to the ordinance:

• Police officers must now use decibel meters before writing a ticket to commercial enterprises for noise violations
• Vince Genna Stadium and other athletic events are exempt from the city’s decibel level standards before 10pm and after 10pm in the event of a reasonable delay such as those for poor weather
• The first offense for a noise violation was reduced from $750 to $250
