Alderman Introduces Ordinance to Ban Loud Music East of Michigan Ave

Alderman Brendan Reilly introduced an ordinance that would ban broadcast or live music at venues east of Michigan Avenue that serve alcohol. Reilly’s ordinance is a response to noise complaints the alderman has allegedly received from residents in Streeterville. “I introduced this ordinance to hang over their head like the sword of Damocles to make sure that they behave,” Reilly told the Chicago Tribune. Current city rules limit noise to 50 decibels and must end by 8:30pm, but Reilly said “a couple” businesses have not followed them. (Chicago Tribune)
