Construction Restrictions
The City Council has approved an amendment to the city’s noise ordinance that forbids construction work on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The amendment is intended to allow residents a timeout from construction noise on the designated holidays. It applies only to contractors and not to homeowners.
