Where this chapter defines “public disturbance noise” as sound unreasonably interfering with the peace, comfort and repose of owners or possessors of real property or neighboring property, only after a complaint has been made by such a person, except for public disturbance noise as defined by SMC 8.16.010(M) which requires two (2) complaints to be made, may the Police Department issue a civil infraction notice. However, nothing herein precludes the Police Department from issuing a civil infraction notice should the “public disturbance noise” occur in the presence of a commissioned police officer.
In all other instances of a “public disturbance noise” a civil infraction notice may be issued without a complaint. (Ord. 2355, 2018)
