The second reading of Geneva's new noise ordinance was held at the town council's meeting on Tuesday night.
The ordinance has been completely revised and is much less specific than the first reading, while still ensuring that the town will not get loud or chaotic, it was noted.
A resident in the audience last night expressed that she was pleased with how much less strict this second draft is, citing the fact that in this version, first offenders will get a warning, instead of being fined for rules they might not know about.
Final adoption may come at the next council meeting.
