We know Ward C Councilman Rich Boggoiano can be kind of a crank

A former cop and sometimes local Grandpa Simpson looking for a complaint in search of a problem has introduced something he'd like to become law that would include the following measures when it comes to raucous noise made by the kids, cars and construction sites:

The measure (Ord. 16.027) would also ban certain activities during evening and overnight hours. Use of power tools, for example, would be prohibited between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m., and unnecessary car honking would be a no-no. Violators could be hit with fines of up to $3,000.

Maximum decibel levels for residential properties — as measured from the property line — would be capped between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. at 65 decibels, which is softer than a vacuum cleaner, and between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. at 50 decibels, which is comparative to normal conversation inside a home.

Boggiano says the noise is really impeding the quality of life all across Jersey City and to that end he's not wrong. Like Johnny mentioned earlier today, if Rich Boggiano wasn't such a cranky guy we'd easily get behind a lot of what he's proposing. There's much more to his plan and well worth reading since it could become law.
