Parish President Joey Durel can be seen on GMA every Thursday around 6:40am to answer your questions. This week Joey Durel answered the following question, please watch the video attached to hear the answer.
If a neighbor has 3 dogs that bark constantly day and night, and the police will not do anything to stop the noise, is there anything else that can be done?Lafayette City/Parish does have a noise ordinance that addresses vocalizations made by domestic animals. It states that if the animal vocalizes 60 are more times in any 10 minute period that would constitute a violation.
To answer the question of what else can be done, the complainant can contact Tim Melancon at 291-8677.
