For any kind of loud, persistent noise, day or night (e.g. from machinery, construction, or a business), state and local sound level limits may apply. These noise limits are stricter for residential areas, especially at night, than for commercial or industrial areas.
Call the City at (651) 266-8989 about noise which may be louder than these limits. An inspector may contact the operator, come out with a sound meter, measure the loudness and duration of the sound, and determine whether there is a violation. If there is a violation, the City may negotiate with the responsible person on ways to lower the noise level. They can also issue orders and enforce the noise limits.
