A town in Michigan decided to have hire an acoustical expert to write a noise ordinance rather than have lawyers write it:

The board previously relied on attorneys to draft the new language, and board members said attorney fees would quickly surpass that dollar amount.

Township Supervisor Mark St. Charles said the sound expert will have a better understanding of sound dynamics, and will be best suited to write an ordinance that stands up in court.

I’m glad someone out there gets it.

Mr. Savant was kind enough to pass on this link:

Bossier and Caddo are hiring an acoustical engineering firm from Atlanta to measure sound in the two parishes and help craft new noise laws in anticipation of continued drilling in the Haynesville Shale natural gas formation.

As he put it: "Can two points a trend make?"
