HACKENSACK, NJ -- Tuesday, the Hackensack City Council voted unanimously to amend the Code of the City’s noise ordinance at last night’s council meeting. 

According to the new ordinance, outdoor construction work can be limited to 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. -  11 p.m. on weekends. 

Depending on their decibel levels, this ordinance can also be applied to lawnmowers and snowblowers. Also, these time constructions may not apply in cases of emergency construction.
