Jewett approves tractor pull with noise waiver

Aug 23, 2023 12:21 am

Michael Ryan reports for the Mountain Eagle that the Jewett town board had to waive the local noise ordinance to do it, but last week they approved a public assembly application from resident Floyd Dart for a tractor pull on September 9. Town Supervisor Greg Kroyer said, “There will be a time during this event we will potentially exceed our Noise Ordinance requirements.” Tractor pulling contests originated with animals, mainly horses, in contest to pull the most weight. Most often farmers would have teams of draft horses competing to carry the heaviest loads over the greatest distance. This particular tractor pull was previously being held in Durham. Dart said, “I am doing this for the kids who have asked me to do it." The event will be held near the intersection of Cross Road and Route 13, on back roads, rain or shine.
