The Town of Ocean City is considering a new noise ordinance this week to tighten up on loud music and shouting on its iconic boardwalk. The town council will take up discussion at its Monday meeting on the proposal, which limits noise from speakers, radios, or human shouting or yelling to between 60 and 75 decibels depending on the time of day and location on the boardwalk. Sixty decibels is a typical conversational level, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
