Noise Ordinance Waiver Applicants Must Appear in Person

The city’s Board of Public Works and Safety Wednesday took a small step toward reforming Muncie’s noise law.  Anyone petitioning the works board for an exemption from Muncie’s noise ordinance will now be required to appear in person as the board votes on whether to approve their written application.   The change is in response to two complaints late last month and earlier this week concerning an outdoor dance at Ball State University’s LaFollette Field that started at 11 p.m. on Sept. 21 and lasted two hours.
