OCEAN SPRINGS — The Ocean Springs Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing on May 15 on a proposed noise ordinance.
Mayor Connie Moran tells The Mississippi Press the board decided during an executive session last night to set hours for outdoor music and not measure decibel levels.
Outdoor music will have to cease on weeknights at 11 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday nights at midnight.
When there are outdoor events on public property, Moran says those events will have to end at 10 p.m.
The board directed city attorney John Edwards to compose the final ordinance for the public hearing in May.
