Scottsville Considers Noise Ordinance, Asks Residents to Weigh In

August 18, 2014

Several residents have complained that live music at local restaurants has become too loud.

Under the current ordinance draft, a first time offender could be fined $500.

Town councilors say Monday night's public hearing is just the first step at recognizing a middle ground for both businesses and residents.

"That's one of the big things about Scottsville is music and art and I'll be damned if I'm going to write any type of an ordinance that kills that, because that's not what we are," said Town Councilor Bob Chambless. "We're an art town, we're a river town and we should be able to enjoy nature and enjoy the arts and live in harmony."

The public is invited to weigh in on the draft ordinance Monday, 7 p.m. at Victory Hall in Scottsville.
