Remerton police prepare to monitor noise

By Robin Jedlicka - bio | email

REMERTON, GA (WALB) - The City of Remerton has dealt with residents complaining about noise levels from bars for a long time.

This week, the Remerton Police Department is training on noise monitoring equipment they recently purchased.  Once the training is complete, police will escort the city council to Remerton's bar area so the council can hear what different noise levels sound like.

They will use that information to establish a decibel level that bars must not exceed.

"Ultimately, I think it will help," said Police Chief Mike Terrell, Remerton's Interim City Manager. "Hopefully, it will help people be able to sleep. It will also help the bar owners know what noise parameters they need to set inside the club so the residents and the bar owners can co-exist."

Remerton's city attorney has already begun crafting the noise ordinance.  Police say most noise complaints involve bass levels being far too high.
