Richmond council meeting to discuss noise ordinance

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Noise will be a hot topic Monday night at Richmond's city council meeting.

A proposed ordinance would make it easier for police to fine people who get too loud.

A similar issue will be up for debate in Henrico county, Tuesday.

The new regulations could lead to a ticket - and even jail time - if someone else fifty feet away can hear the noise.
