Every year, a Franklin resident warns his neighbors about a big party at his home in Paris Estates and asks the city to give him a break from the noise rules.
Scott Wagner’s party after an annual golf tournament he hosts at Hillview Country Club is usually pretty low key. The party is 50 or so adults hanging around and talking, with some music playing out of a small stereo. But letting his neighbors and the city know it’s coming is the right thing to do, he said. And it gives an extra assurance that police won’t be writing a ticket if someone does complain.
Noise ordinances in Greenwood and Franklin are meant to keep noise down from people yelling and screaming at parties or blasting loud music from their cars, homes or businesses, but police rarely write tickets to noisemakers.
