B.E. Council Passes Resolution to Request “Vehicle Noise Laws Enforced” Signs

Monday night, the Blue Earth City Council passed a resolution to request the Minnesota Department of Transportation to install “Vehicle Noise Laws Enforced” signes on the south and north entrances to the City on Highway 169.

 

Those signs are meant to warn drivers that they can, and will, be ticketed for excessive vehicle noise.

 

Blue Earth Police Chief Tom Fletcher was present to discuss the issue, including the enforcement of the law.

 

There is a cost to the City for installation as MnDOT will charge almost $1,000 per sign to install them.

 

The Council also heard the 2018 City Audit Report and voted to accept it, had the first reading of two proposed ordinances, one to enact the City Sales Tax, the other to make additions to an ordinance concerning citizen responsibilities for maintenance of boulevards.

 

Council Members also decided that its next work session before the July 15th meeting will include a tour of the completed construction project at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant.
