Up until April 15, music and other noise from the downtown area had to be kept down to 75 decibels between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. That's no louder than a vacuum cleaner.
Starting April 15, from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m., sound cannot exceed 60 decibels "as measured at the property line of the business."
During the day Sunday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., business can't exceed 80 decibels. On Friday and Saturday, that rule applies until midnight.
The noise ordinance was unanimously approved by city leaders in March.
Any business that violates the ordinance three times could have its permit pulled for a year.
Residents told KVUE back in December the music and other noises coming from the Main Street bar scene is just too loud.
Bar owners said they don't want to cause any problems.
