Following complaints of noise from residents, one councilwoman is hoping to tweak times work is done.
District 8 councilwoman Denise Amoroso is introducing a proposed ordinance during tonight’s metro council meeting.
She says she’s gotten many phone calls about construction crews working past the current city-parish ordinance that says they have to stop at sundown.
Amoroso is proposing is cutting off construction noise at 5 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays.
Currently, crews can work from 7 a.m. to sunset.
Construction work is defined in the city-parish ordinance as any kind of demolition, alteration or repair of any building.
Amoroso is hoping to set a public hearing date and possibly vote on the proposed ordinance if it passes in January.
Metro council will meet Wednesday evening at 4 p.m. inside City Hall.
