Noise task force developing citations

There is a task force in The City that has a mission to address noise.

At its latest meeting, plans for a so-called Noise Citation Program were discussed, with draft copies of citations for noise violations of fines between $100 and $500.

Cecilia Mangoba, an attorney in the City Attorney’s Office who sits on the task force, said the program’s goal would be to see multiple departments issuing the citation and using the process, according to a record of the meeting. The next step, the record shows, is to develop “standard operating procedures for how and when the citations would be issued.”

The good news for The City’s budget deficit of $522.2 million for the upcoming fiscal year is that “all fines collected under the noise citation program presently would go to the general fund.”

The talks about his program have been quiet.
