Kershaw County Council adopted a noise ordinance in July that will be enforced by the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office. The new ordinance will target loud and unnecessary noise in unincorporated residential areas of the county.   

An education phase will be implemented prior to any tickets being issued for violations of the new ordinance.  Warning tickets will be used initially as a tool to help educate the public that certain noise sources are now against the law. The new ordinance will also be posted on the KCSO Web site. This will allow the public to read the new law and understand exactly what it prohibits as well as the penalties for its violation.

The violation of the ordinance is a misdemeanor level offense. Any person, firm, or corporation who violates this article or fails to comply with any of its requirements may be fined no more than $100 for the first offense.  The punishment for the second and subsequent offenses will be a fine of $250 and/or up to 30 days in jail.
