Cambridge Council committee approves noise ordinance

Written by 

Long-awaited proposal now moves on to full Council vote

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Cambridge City Council, meeting as a Committee as a Whole, approved a piece of legislation last night that has been on and off the table for months.

The Committee finally OK'd a proposed noise ordinance for amplified music, an ordinance that had been in the works since August 2013. Proposed levels are 85 decibels at 100 feet for permitted events. Only 8 permits per business, per year, will be issued. Events will only be allowed to take place on Friday or Saturday or holidays. Sixty decibels is the proposed high for general amplified music. Councilman Jack Marlin, who was a vocal proponent of the ordinance, commented on the long process:

The Cambridge Police now have a decibel meter capable of measuring noise levels to enforce the ordinance. The issue will have its first reading at the next full meeting of Council on Monday, May 26th.

The Legislative Committee also met last night and approve a recommendation for a liquor license to for Sleep Inn Cambridge for the Ohio Liquor Control Board.

Finance met as well, and approved a transfer in the Police Department Budget from the Retirement Benefits line item to Travel and Training in the amount of $5,869. An appropriation of $4,686 into the Police Salary line item was also OKd'. Finance approved the appropriation of a grant of $2,370 from the Cambridge Kiwanis Club into the Cambridge Fire Department equipment line item as well.
