New contraband resolution for police, noise levels in Nolensville to be discussed at May 2 meeting

By RACHAEL LONG

Along with the usual departmental reports and town business, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) will hear two public hearings and a few noteworthy agenda items at its Thursday, May 2 meeting.

The public hearings deal with the Rocky Fork Road master concept plan and re-zoning as well as the proposed town budget for FY 2020.

The agenda continues with a resolution to declare contraband certain property that the Nolensville Police Department seizes. The order, signed by Circuit Court Judge James Martin III, also gives the NPD the authority to dispose of or exchange the firearms with a licensed and qualified law enforcement firearms dealer.

The resolution comes after Nolensville Police Chief Roddy Parker filed a petition before the Williamson County Circuit Criminal Court requesting that ownership and rights of 24 firearms in the custody of the NPD be transferred to the police department.

Town leaders will also hear an ordinance to amend the municipal code as it pertains to noises emitted by radios, phonographs, etc. The code, as it currently reads, prohibits any noises “in such a manner or with such volume particularly during the hours between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. as to annoy or disturb the quiet, comfort or repose of persons…within fifty (50) feet of the vicinity.”

The proposed amendment to this code specifies the volume level and timeframe in which the devices would be emitting a prohibited level of sound. If approved, the amended code would prohibit noises of “any radio, phonograph, stereo system or any musical instrument or sound device” from being more than 70 decibels in volume from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or 60 decibels from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Finally, BOMA members will hear a resolution to amend an agreement with Collier Engineering Company, Inc. The town is currently in an agreement with the engineering firm in regard to services on Rocky Fork Road. The resolution would include engineering services to assess the condition and severity of repairs needed for portions of Kidd Road, York Road, Sam Donald Road, Rocky Fork Road and Clovercroft Road within town limits.

The resolution would also have Collier Engineering provide a maintenance and rehabilitation plan for those roads.

If adopted, the town will enter into an agreement with the firm for services. The payment for those services must not exceed $12,050.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen will next convene at Town Hall on Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m. Town Hall is located at 7218 Nolensville Road in Nolensville, Tenn.
