Community invited to meeting about noise ordinance

| February 27, 2018

COSHOCTON – A community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, March 5 in council chambers to discuss the noise ordinance being worked on by Coshocton City Council.

The meeting was announced at council’s Feb. 26 meeting. At that same meeting Councilmen Roger Moore and Mike Gross expressed their frustration with how long it’s taken to address this ordinance.

“I’m worried we are setting a bad precedent,” Moore said. “I’d like to see this back on the agenda and voted on one way or another as quickly as possible.”

Sheriff Tim Rogers briefly brought up a drug raid that his office executed on Feb. 23.

“I’m not sure where they will end up, but we got three people off the street for at least a short time,” he said.

Safety Service Director Max Crown asked how the new body scanner was working for the sheriff’s office.

“It’s up and running and we are using it 24/7,” Rogers said. “If you leave the facility you are scanned when you come back in and anyone who is arrested off the street is scanned.”

Councilman Tom Grier then passed on a compliment to the sheriff’s office.

“I heard from a community member who was very grateful for the arrests on Third Street,” Grier said.

Before the meeting ended Council Clerk Cherry Wilson read out loud two letters that were sent to council. Both letters were from local residents and addressed the need for a vacant building ordinance. The writers hoped that such an ordinance would help prevent any more empty buildings from deteriorating due to years of neglect.
