County To Take Stronger Control of Smells

Teton County officials will consider changes to laws governing nuisances today. The regulations, which govern everything from air quality to RV storage and noise, are set for discussion at today’s county commission meeting.

Planners want to update codes to avoid conflicts that have occurred between neighboring properties in the county.

One such update would make it unlawful to store a pile of horse manure near a neighbor’s home.  All smelly material that is readily detectable from beyond the property line would be prohibited.

The code also governs RV storage and states that, as an example, storage of a camper for two months in the front yard would be made illegal.

The regulations for noise would limit the level to 55 DBA in residential zones. That level is on par with a conversation in a quiet suburb setting. In other zones, noise could be twice as loud at 65 DBA.

Agricultural land would be exempt. Violations could cause a fine of 750.00 to be incurred.
