Turning down the noise


The town’s ad hoc amplified sound committee has submitted a proposed policy for its use in parks to the Board of Selectmen. The new policy would define the term and restrict its use for recurring events, such as weekly baseball games at Morton Field, which in the past triggered complaints from neighbors. Under the proposal, permits for one-time use of amplified sound could still be obtained from the town’s Recreation Department, but all permits for its recurring use would have to be approved by the Board of Selectmen. The proposal is being reviewed by the town counsel. - Brenda J. Buote
