Shhh! Or fork over $500

If you want to party in Stanton, you’re going to have to keep the music down.

With its police tired of fielding complaints and, with a toothless ordinance in place, unable to do much, the City Council last week approved tougher penalties for those who violate the city’s noise law.

Offenders used to get away with a warning. Now, they’ll get one warning from sheriff’s deputies – the Orange County Sheriff’s Department polices Stanton –and a $500 fine upon the second offense.

“People used to shine us off,” said Mayor David Shawver. “They won’t be able to do that anymore.”
