Commissioners Vote 3-2 For Noise Ordinance
A majority of Transylvania County commissioners adopted a new noise ordinance on Monday night that will shut down the dirt bike track on Whitmire Road.
Supporters of the new ordinance believe it will be a more effective tool in stopping unwanted noise, while detractors feel the law is too subjective, infringes on private property rights and will eliminate a needed recreation spot for young people.
Voting for the new ordinance were Commissioners David Guice, Daryle Hogsed and Lynn Bullock. Jason Chappell and Kelvin Phillips voted against the ordinance.
