Because certain sounds at certain levels can be harmful to the health and welfare of citizens, the City of Vicksburg has adopted a noise ordinance that prohibits excessive and annoying sounds within the city limits. The ordinance regulates specific times certain noise sources can be operated and defines noise limits within the city limits. The City of Vicksburg Police Department insures that this ordinance is obeyed by responding to noise complaints throughout the community.

Events or actions may be prohibited if they cause a noise disturbance. These include continuously barking dogs, noisy construction equipment, horns and signaling devices not being used for a danger warning, stereos and televisions, engine repair and testing, or excessive party noise. Violation of this ordinance is a misdemeanor and can result in a fine. To receive a copy of the City of Vicksburg's noise ordinance, or to report a suspected noise violation, contact the City of Vicksburg Police Department’s main offices, located at 820 Veto Street, between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, or call them at (601) 636-2511.
