The town of Huntsville is advising that they will be holding public meetings on proposed changes to the noise bylaw.

The current By-Law States that people have the right to an environment free from unusual, unnecessary or excessive noise which may degrade in the quality of their life or cause nuisance. 

Municipal By-Law Enforcement Officer Andrew Stillar told councilors that the current laws are problematic and very subjective. Some people may be bothered by some kinds of noise while others might not be.

Staff suggests removing the first section of the existing by-law and changing it to certain times of the day that noise can be made rather than amount or volume. 

The public meetings will be held at the Active Living Centre on July 11th and at the Port Sydney Community Centre on July 12th.  Both meetings start at 7pm.
