Sec. 22-9. Engine exhaust. The discharge into the open air of the exhaust of any steam engine, stationary internal combustion engine or motor vehicle, except through a muffler or other device which effectively prevents loud explosive noises therefrom is unlawful.
There are many Grand Haven citizens who live here, pay our taxes and support local business. We would like to enjoy our short but beautiful summers also. It has come to the point where the noise prevents one from even enjoying the backyard. We have a noise ordinance that needs to be actively enforced. A few warnings and a few tickets would send the message to everyone that Grand Haven wants to be a quiet and peaceful community.
