Construction Noise

MGO 24.08 bans the substantial use of building equipment between 7:00 pm and 7:00 am, Monday - Saturday. On Sunday, no one may use building equipment before 10:00 am and after 7 pm. Substantial use would disrupt the peace and quality of life of people in the area. Equipment can mean hammers, power saws, compressors, pneumatic tools, etc.


If you feel that there is a violation of the ordinance, please follow these steps:

  1. Contact the Building Inspection Division at (608) 266-4551. We will contact the contractor and remind them of the ordinance. 

  2. If the noise continues, call the Police Non-Emergency phone at (608) 266-4275.
