Political conflict does nothing to silence noise problem in the Bronx and city

Mayor Bloomberg criticized the City Council Wednesday for not taking care of the noise problem in the Bronx and the city.

Bloomberg first introduced his plan to the City Council last year. He says since his initial proposal the council has held only one hearing on the matter. Bloomberg feels the city should revise five sections of the decades-old code.

In Bloomberg?s proposal, police would have the authority to issue summonses based on what noise they think is too loud. Currently, police officers are required to use decibel meters. Bloomberg is also calling for a reduction of construction noise and a crackdown on noise from bars and nightclubs.
