Hagerstown officials are considering changing the city's noise ordinance which has not been updated since 1996. Kathleen A. Maher, the city's planning director, said Tuesday that the proposed changes were needed to clearly state what entities enforce the ordinance and clean up wording that was considered confusing.  “It makes it clearer what the city's intent is,” Maher told the Hagerstown City Council during a work session at City Hall. New provisions include adding a statement of intent, which was not included previously, and clear definitions of contained terms such as “excessive noise,” “plainly audible” and “day time,” according to a memorandum to the five-member council.
