Bluffton announces new noise ordinance

Posted: Updated:

After months and months of debating, the town of Bluffton now has a new noise ordinance, which limits outdoor music.

Under the new ordinance, music cannot be played any louder than 50 decibels, and the sound should not reach any further than 250 feet away from a business or home.

The noise issue has been a hot topic with folks in the Old Town section of Bluffton, because of two businesses that play outdoor music.

Not everyone was excited about the vote, but council says this is a start in the right directon.
