A complete copy of the City of Adel Noise Ordinance (Ordinance No. 256) is available from the Code
Compliance Department. The following is an excerpt from that ordinance as it pertains to the Sound Permit.
No person shall use, operate or cause to be used or operated any sound equipment upon the public right-of-way, in any building or
upon any public or private premises, if the sound emitted is plainly audible from the public right-of-way within the City, unless
such person has obtained a noise permit in accordance with this section, and the actual use or operation of such sound equipment
is not inconsistent with the statements made in the application, the conditions imposed in the sound equipment permit or the
limitations specified in subsection 4 of this section. A noise permit shall not be transferable, and it shall be conspicuously
displayed on or adjacent to the sound equipment.
Permit applications received less than two (2) weeks before the event may not be processed by the City in time for the event.
