What time is outdoor music allowed?

The City Ordinance states: "The making or continuing to make any outdoor music or amplified noise is prohibited from 10:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 12:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Friday through Sunday."

If your event is expected to play amplified music outside these permitted hours, a Noise Variance Permit will need to be completed and turned in to the Health Services Department for approval before the event. The Health Department does not issue Noise Variance Permits for private events/parties.
