Franklin Twp. resident wants noise ordinance

A Franklin Township resident has questioned why the township doesn’t have a noise ordinance.

Maureen Lenar, who lives on the 800 block of Elm Street, asked township supervisors on Tuesday if the board would look to create a noise ordinance.

Board Chairman Fred Kemmerer Jr. said he is fine with the township’s police department following the state ordinance guidelines that are in place regarding noise issues.

Lenar said that while her neighbor has been quiet of late, she has dealt with many noise issues in the past.

“I don’t want it to continue,” Lenar said. “I have a sick husband. What do I do?”

Lenar said that while her neighbor has been good as of late, she worries when the nicer weather returns.

“I just can’t keep letting it slide,” she said. “It’s been going on for years.”

Kemmerer said the best thing for Lenar to do is call the police and follow it up with documentation with the township.

Supervisor Robin Cressley assured Lenar that her concerns would be passed on.

“We did talk to the (police) chief,” Cressley said. “We can mention it again that you were in.”

In November, Lenar asked the board what could be done to stop her neighbor from running his equipment late at night.
