Allegany Town Board members voted down a proposed change in the current noise ordinance Thursday.

Pat Eaton, town supervisor, said the board voted 3-2 against changing the sound ordinance, which currently allows for the noise level to be raised 3 decibels above the ambient level of 25 decibels. Town officials had considered changing the sound ordinance to allow for 40 decibels of noise that could be emitted by a proposed wind turbine farm for the Chipmonk and Knapp Creek areas.

Mr. Eaton said he and town board members John Hare and Jim Hitchcock were in favor of keeping the sound ordinance at its current requirements, while board members Ray Jonak and Hans Sendlakowski had voted to change the ordinance allowing for 40 decibels of sound.
