BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A southern Indiana county where crews are busy building the Interstate 69 extension has responded to residents' noise complaints by limiting how much noise crews can make at night.
The Monroe County Board of Commissioners approved a new county ordinance Friday restricting the amount of noise that can be made between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., including vehicles noises.
Noise from the highway's construction is allowed during the day, but for any work after 10 p.m., a special permit is needed from the board of commissioners.
County highway director Bill Williams tells The Herald-Times the permit portion of the ordinance mimics once already in place in the city of Bloomington.
The ordinance includes a provision allowing the sheriff's office to issue a citation to those who violate the ordinance.
