Bishop Rick Painter had the sdund level of his Church Bells set at 67 decibels from the nearest property line. 60 to 70 decibels represents normal conversation and 30 decibels would be a wisper.This city of Phoenix noise ordinance exempted ice cream trucks from the ordinance but not Church bells.Pastor Painter was given a 10 day suspended jail sentence and 3 years probation. The Alliance Defense fund steped in and in the State of Arizona vs Painter, the pastors criminal record was cleared. After this, i enjoy the bells at our Church even more. Let's ring once more for Bishop Painter.
