Music, whistling, yelling: Ocean City’s noise rules would make some acts crime on Boardwalk

April 16, 2021

 Ocean City has introduced a revised noise ordinance to more effectively target noise pollution on the Boardwalk. The newest rules join the 25-year long fight to control the noise emanating from Boardwalk performers and some businesses. If someone’s radio, musical instrument and “sound amplification device” exceeds a certain level they can be charged with a misdemeanor, according to the amended ordinance introduced Tuesday. Yelling, whistling, singing and other acts that surpass a certain noise level can also be a violation under the ordinance.
