Does Walton County have a noise ordinance?
Not one that's enforced by any sort of emperical data...
Here's the link with the information for Walton County noise ordinances.
Walton County, FL - Home Page - Links to Codes, Ordinances, & Statutes
Hope that helps and hope you aren't having a rough time with noise
Grayton has one. 11:00 p.m.
Thanks Gidget. I think I must take this pent up anger and frustration and put it to good use! "Boom Cars" are on my hit list! Beyond hoping the little #$#@%$# go deaf at an early age, we must insist upon WCSO enforcement!
It is not common practice for the WCSO to enforce noise ordinances in the county. It might be better and more effective to write down the tag number and notify the Florida Highway Patrol.
The noise issue and the lack of ordinance enforcement is and will continue to be an ongoing issue in the county.
Florida Uniform Safety and Traffic statutes cover boom cars. Last I heard it was being appealed in the Second District, not sure how that came out though.
I think that's 11:00 p.m. during the week and 12:00 p.m. weekends.
But it could have changed.........who knows :idontno:
what is the phone number to report a noise ordinance violation? i inderstand it is 10 on weeknights and 11 on weekends
The Sheriff's Office, 892-8186.
I think if you're vacationing in a hot spot it's best to be proactive. I bring a white noise machine with me when I travel -- actually I have two. One for home and one for travel! Bliss! Bottom line is if you're counting on someone else to make sure you're getting the quiet sleep you deserve you're at the mercy of every idiot on the street and/or varying members of law enforcement and government, who, I ASSURE you, care far less about your comfort than you do. I don't mind the noise around here in general. The bands or music and crowds are a nuisance on one hand and exciting on another. If I wanted peace and quiet I'd move to Baker.
I go with a small oscillating fan. Does the same as a white noise machine but is much cheaper and creates a nice breeze.
