Indiana County OKs I-69 Construction Noise Limits

 
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 department to issue a citation to those who violate the ordinance.
