The town of Liberty Grove is asking you to keep the noise down following a number of different complaints. The town board updated its nuisance ordinance during its meeting earlier this month to address concerns like fireworks and loud vehicles. The new ordinance is not necessarily tougher than what is on the books in the county, but it now includes a number of references to state statutes. Town Board Chairperson John Lowry said the new ordinance puts them in a better position to handle the complaints and inform people if they are doing something wrong.
Lowry added they tried to not be too restrictive with the ordinance to allow people to do things like shoot target practice or work with farm machinery on their property. According to the draft ordinance posted online, the first offense could cost you between $20 and $500 while subsequent times could be a fine of as much as $1,000.
