9.15.040 Special noise sources.
L. Construction of buildings and projects.
1. It is unlawful for a person within a residential land use district to operate or perform construction or repair work on a building, structure or project, or to operate a pile driver, steam shovel, pneumatic hammer, derrick, steam or electric hoist, or other construction-type device on city-recognized holidays as designated by city council resolution, and on Monday through Friday, prior to 7:30 a.m. and after 7:00 p.m. on each day and on Saturdays and Sundays, prior to 9:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. The above prohibition does not apply to emergency work.
2. Exemptions by special permit from the above prohibitions may be obtained from the city manager if the one applying for the exemption can demonstrate written consent from abutting residents and that the noise and disruption would not cause a reasonable person of normal sensitivity residing in the area major discomfort or annoyance. (Ord. 554 § 1, 1984; Ord. 446, 1980; 1991 code § 5-1.4)
The primary advantage of a permit is it brings you the services of a building inspector who approves each phase of the construction process and ensures the work is done safely and properly.
Contractors will be required to show a valid contractor's license, declare their workers compensation status, and obtain a City business license.
