2.1. AN ORDINANCE OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING SECTION 9.38.056 TO THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CITY CODE REGARDING NOISE FROM VEHICLES AND BICYCLES - Final reading and adoption
Adopt - an ordinance modifying the City's noise ordinance as it pertains to amplified sound from bicycles in the downtown core. The focus was the impact of multiple citations issued to vendors who provide biking services to the public while playing loud music. Currently, amplified music is prohibited from a bicycle when it exceeds a reasonable volume. The change to the municipal code would require a complaint first within the downtown core before an enforcement action is taken and to leave the municipal code as is for all remaining geographic areas.
