   I called the sheriff office once again this Saturday to complain about excessive noise in our area.  (I live in the county)  We have a crappy rock band that wants to play all day everyday during the weekend and occasionally late at night.  I was told by the dispatcher that there is no noise ordinance in the county.  My question is, how do we go about creating one?  I do not expect complete silence at all times but I find it hard to believe that in today's day and age that Americans do not have the freedom to be safe from noise pollution.  I shouldn't have to hide in my home on a beautiful day because I don't want to be assaulted by the noise from a bunch of middle age idiots that have absolutely no musical talent a quater of a mile away.  I do believe that this is excessive and I find it hard to believe that I cannot get law enforcement support.  If this was going on next door to JB then I bet it would stop real quick.  What can decent tax paying, productive citizens do to stop this immature crap?  Any intelligent suggestions would be appreciated.

Good luck on this one.  Sorry I have no intelligent suggestions to give, other than try talking tactfully with the offending parties or watch them closely for some law breaking activity to turn them in for.

Well, I am way more offended by the LOUD radios of passing cars than I would be by a garage band that plays mostly in the day.
I have it on good authority that the Hokey-Pokey really IS what it's all about.

I know alot of people who choose to live outside of cities, and towns so they can enjoy the freedom that comes with it.
Be that making noise, having junk in their yards, or shooting guns/ hunting. Unfortunately, what Julymorning suggested about talking to the offending parties is your best bet. Just remember to be civil, and talk to them as equals. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I speak from experience, and tell you if you can get people who already do not respect your peace to not punch you in the face or get verbally abusive, you are doing well.  But it's worth a shot trying to be diplomatic.  Just don't be surprised if it backfires.
I have learned over the years to take advantage of any quiet time from neighbors to open windows and go outside.  Instead of letting their boorish behavior drive me up the wall, I come inside and crank up my own noise so I can't hear theirs.   Then there is always earplugs to save your sanity.

My son has a band they do play at my house. I have asked my surrounding neighbors if it bothers them. They all tell me they really dont hear it. I do have set times they can play. They do not play all weekend or late. Most of them have paying jobs and a few go to school. My neighbbors are very nice people and we talk to each other. Maybe you could ask them to play for a set time? Seems to work for us.

    When there is no law to back you up it is hard for us to take action. Such as the recent headline that screamed "Sheriff mishandles speeds" and it turned out it was a private road with no speed limit we can enforce.

And I live in Waynesville which does have a noise ordinance.

I know it must be annoying but I would consider yourself lucky it happens during the day, rather than the night. Talking to them nicely may help but in the end the reasons people choose to live out in the country areas are privacy and freedom. Good luck hope you can reach a compromise.

This just goes to show how lazy people really are, they would rather waste the taxpayers money and call the sheriff about someone being to load instead of getting off their butts and walking over and asking them nicely to keep the noise down.

In my eyes there are probably more important things going on, as they are short staffed. Yes noise can be a nuisance but unless its keeping you up all hours of the night I say just ignore and get on with whatever you were doing.

big boomer stereos are cheap alternative to OEM Bose systems.  My truck has the Bose system in it and even with the windows down, you can FEEL the music in the truck, but cannot hear much at all outside, and def not any booming.   Quanity is not as important as quality!..sorry for straying from subject.

Bose speaker systems have always been the best. (But boy are they expensive!)
I know I am hijacking the thread too.  Sorry.  At least I tried to offer constructive help in the beginning.
Besides, I think it's cool when subjects take off with a life all their own.  Go hijack some of mine, I don't mind at all!

I have the Bose 901 speaker and it is unlimited wattage in a home setting (Yes high dollar, $1500.00), but, I have some 1980's Tripple9 Kenwoods that blow them out of the water.

yeah, but the auto ones are designed for the confined space of a passenger compartment.  As a kid I was into the stereo systems...but not as a boomer.  I was into "hi-fi" and won a few sound quality completions (alpine head unit and total aftermarket infinity system) It would get loud, but whats the point...I would rather enjoy my music and listen to the discrete sweet spots than destroy my hearing and never get to hear the best part of the music. Hearing what my kids have to say is important to me (you only get that once in life)

     We do not have a noise ordinance but if law enforcement officials read the statutes, peace disturbance will cover it. For the rest of the county, here is the statute from the internet.  It is not the deputies job to determine if the offender will be charged but to file the report.  Let the prosecutor drop the ball.

574.010. 1. A person commits the crime of peace disturbance if:

(1) He unreasonably and knowingly disturbs or alarms another person or persons by:

(a) Loud noise; or

(b) Offensive language addressed in a face-to-face manner to a specific individual and uttered under circumstances which are likely to produce an immediate violent response from a reasonable recipient; or

(c) Threatening to commit a felonious act against any person under circumstances which are likely to cause a reasonable person to fear that such threat may be carried out; or

(d) Fighting; or

(e) Creating a noxious and offensive odor;

(2) He is in a public place or on private property of another without consent and purposely causes inconvenience to another person or persons by unreasonably and physically obstructing:

(a) Vehicular or pedestrian traffic; or

(b) The free ingress or egress to or from a public or private place.

2. Peace disturbance is a class B misdemeanor upon the first conviction. Upon a second or subsequent conviction, peace disturbance is a class A misdemeanor. Upon a third or subsequent conviction, a person shall be sentenced to pay a fine of no less than one thousand dollars and no more than five thousand dollars.

so that accounts for shooting in the middle of the night in a residential neighborhood too huh?  (that issue was taken care of by the way) BTW..how the freak do you "target practice" in the middle of the night when not sure of the target/backdrop is safe and no light was pointed at the target....random recklessness and disregard to neighbors is how- wanna bet there was alcohol involved...  no further details...I think they were reprimanded because they have been quiet since....or maybe too cold to party.

Wondered if riding a very loud four wheeler in St. Robert City limits is against the law.  It is VERY LOUD.  My other neighbor has one but it's not any louder than a lawnmower, this one is older and junkier and loud.
