Because certain sounds at certain levels can be harmful to the health and welfare of citizens, Hampton Township has adopted a noise ordinance that prohibits excessive and annoying sounds within Hampton Township limits. The ordinance regulates specific times certain noise sources can be operated and defines noise limits within the township. The Township of Hampton Police Department insures that this ordinance is obeyed by responding to noise complaints throughout the community.
Events or actions may be prohibited if they cause a noise disturbance. These include continuously barking dogs, noisy construction equipment, horns and signaling devices not being used for a danger warning, stereos and televisions, engine repair and testing, or excessive party noise. Violation of this ordinance is a summary offense and can result in fines up to $300.
