The Macon County Planning Board met last Thursday to consider whether a noise ordinance is needed in the county. After hearing some complaints from members of the public – some of them brought to tears in their pleas – the commissioners tasked the planning board with making the decision.
In the first meeting upon taking up their new task, members of the public turned out to discuss issues they had with neighbors. One in particular stressed how close her and her family were to just calling it quits all together.
“My husband came to me the other night and said 'this is it, we have to list the house,” she said about the late night noises that are regularly produced by her neighbor.
