Does Harford County have a noise ordinance?

Yes. The ordinance is only applicable between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. The ordinance applies to noise that is produced vocally with any radio receiving set, phonograph, musical instrument, household tool or equipment or any device intended for the production or reproduction of sound. If noise emanating from one of the previous mentioned devices is audible between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. on property used for residential purposes and located more than 50 feet from the source of the sound, there is a violation of the law. There are several exemptions to this ordinance -- emergency equipment, agricultural operations and the operation of a business to name a few.
