The Summit County Shooting Range has cut back its hours of operation this summer in an attempt to reduce noise on weekends.

The range is now open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, three hours shorter than previous summer seasons, which end Oct. 31. On weekdays, the range remains open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

For the winter season, which runs from Nov. 1 through March 31, Range Master Merle Schultz said the range will be open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends.

Looking ahead, Schultz said the Summit Board of County Commissioners and the range are discussing the possibility of financing a noise study and possible noise remediation work.
