TIVERTON — Neighbors hear it, but noise measured in decibels from ventilation fans and gun shots, coming from the shooting range at Sakonnet River Outfitters at 777 Main Road in Tiverton, does not violate the town noise ordinance, says Tiverton Police Chief Thomas Blakey in a report to the Town Council.
