NEW BRITAIN, CT (WFSB) -
New Britain residents complained to city leaders that plows clearing snow throughout the night during Blizzard Charlotte kept them awake.
During the storm, plows, dump trucks and payloaders worked almost nonstop for days until the city was cleared of snow.
However, that noise did not sit well with residents, who heard it at 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.
"That's a little rough," said Al Pienkowski of New Britain.
A city council member said he's looking into the current noise ordinance after getting a complaint from a resident the Monday after Blizzard Charlotte hit.
She told the council member that for two nights in a row, she was kept awake by heavy duty equipment working to clear the parking lot of the nearby New Britain Museum of Art.
"I think most people understand its a 24-hour job to remove the snow," said New Britain mayor's spokesperson Phil Sherwood. "But, the woman who levied the complaint brings up an interesting point and excessive noise at 2 a.m. is a quality of life issue."
The city's current noise ordinance covers the hours of 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. during the week, and 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. during the weekends.
However, snow removal equipment is an exception to the ordinance and it has not been looked at for some time, according to city officials.
"A lot of people are quick to dismiss noise complaints as being petty but it's not," Sherwood said. "When you're woken up at 2 a.m., 3 a.m., 4 a.m. in the morning, it's not a petty issue and it's something the city takes seriously."
The city councilman who fielded the complaint says right now he's speaking to other council members to get a feel for whether they feel this ordinance has to be looked at.
A council meeting is scheduled for next week, but the ordinance wouldn't be ready to be discussed until their meeting in mid-March.
