IL – ALTON > New noise ordinance

The Alton City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday aimed at turning down the volume on noise nuisances such as booming car stereo systems and ear-splitting motorcycle mufflers.

Violators can face fines if the noise is audible 75 feet from residences or businesses between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. A violation is punishable by a fine of $75-$750. Second violations within 30 days can bring a fine of $500-$750.
