Noise Complaints

City Code outlines permissible noise limits in Section 5-7-3, which defines maximum decibel levels for residential, commercial, and industrial areas. The Code also notes exceptions to the decibel limits for certain activities, like home repair or grounds maintenance. If you hear noise that you believe violates City Code, please follow the steps below to submit a complaint.

  1. Review the Code: Click Here to View Section 5-7-3
  2. Call Non-Emergency Dispatch at 406-457-8866

The non-emergency dispatch team will notify a police officer to follow-up with the complaint as soon as possible. If the noise can still be heard when the officer arrives, they may use a decimeter to measure the noise and determine if it exceeds the limit.
