Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to remind all citizens of the noise ordinance in place within the city limits of the Town of Rayville.

“With the weather getting warmer and summer months approaching, many of you will be having get-togethers in your homes and yards,” said the chief. “Please remember to keep your music at a respectful level and be mindful of your neighbors.”

Chief Robinson also advised that motorists should keep the music in their vehicles at a level that cannot be easily heard outside the vehicle.

“My officers will be on the alert for loud music and other disturbance of the peace,” said the Chief.

Chief Robinson stated that when having gatherings at your home, you should also make sure your guests don’t obstruct your neighbors’ property when parking their vehicles.

Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by the Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison St. or to call 728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
