Town Hall Meeting Room

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

7:30 p.m.


Pursuant to 24 V.S.A., Chapter 59 and Chapter 61, the Williston Selectboard is proposing to adopt revisions to the Noise Control Ordinance which was first adopted in 2004. The Noise Control Ordinance is an existing ordinance which establishes controls that are intended to reduce noise in the community.

The public hearing on this matter is scheduled for Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at 7:30 P.M. in the Williston Town Hall Meeting Room. The only proposed substantive change is to Section 6.13. Below is the proposed wording (additions are underlined; deletions are shown with a strikethrough font):

“6.13 The use of firearms when used for hunting in accordance with state Fish and Wildlife laws or when used for sport shooting consistent with any permitting conditions placed on such use. For sport shooting uses permitted prior to January 1, 2005, the hours of operation will be determined through a written agreement with the Town shall be as follows:

a.   Wednesday, 4:00 p.m. to dusk

  1. Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  2. Saturday, for special events only on the condition that a representative of the shooting club notifies the Williston Police Department and the Williston Town Manager’s Office of such event at least three business days prior to the planned event and provided the event occurs during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  3. “Special events” means shooting events held outside the regular shooting schedule and shall not include use of the facility solely by Club members outside of the regular shooting schedule, although Club members may participate in Special Events. Special events shall not include non-shooting events of the Club, which are not restricted by this Ordinance.
  4. Special events shall not exceed nine Saturdays during a calendar year.

If adopted, the amendments may become effective 60 days after the public hearing and vote by the Selectboard.

Notice is hereby given that any ordinance or amendment thereto adopted by the Town of Williston may be disapproved by a vote of a majority of the qualified voters at an annual or special meeting as provided in 24 V.S.A. §1973.

Copies of the entire text of the proposed revisions are available for review during regular business hours at the Town Hall located at 7900 Williston Road, Williston, VT. Copies can also be found on the Town’s web page at http://town.williston.vt.us. If you have any questions, please contact Richard McGuire at (802) 878-0919.
