OCEAN SPRINGS — Twenty-eight people spoke during a public meeting at Ocean Springs City Hall about the city adopting a noise ordinance.
Business and home owners spoke to the mayor and Board of Aldermen during a two-hour meeting. They expressed their opinions on the attraction of having bands at night all the way to the disruption of sleep when the loud music invades bedrooms.
Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran called the issue growing pains. She pointed out the music scene is part of the arts and is an attraction to the city.
Once the board composes a noise ordinance, The Mississippi Press reports there will be an additional public hearing before it’s adopted sometime within the next couple of months.
