Noise Waiver

The City of Lee's Summit has a noise ordinance that prevents certain types of noise and also establishes "quiet times" during certain hours.  Persons and/or businesses that wish to request a variance for the ordinance must do so by making a request to the Chief of Police.  This online form can be used to request a noise waiver.  Please allow 5-7 business days for the processing of your request.  Once approved or declined, you will be notified of the decision made regarding the variance request.

For questions, you may contact the Chief's secretary directly at 816-969-1795.
