Brookhaven City Council approved Jan. 12 an amended noise ordinance to redefine when daytime and nighttime hours are and at what sound levels are acceptable during these times.
Daytime hours now defined by the city ordinance are between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 7 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Friday; 9 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.
Nighttime hours are 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and midnight to 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
A business could lose its liquor license if it violates the noise ordinance twice within six months or three times in a year, explained City Attorney Chris Balch.
