The Tallahassee City Commission is set to take up a sound ordinance during its meeting Wednesday.

The city put off its last vote on the ordinance in an attempt to give neighborhoods and businesses more time to work out disagreements about what an acceptable noise level is and how it should be measured. But commissioners promised they’d take a vote during their meeting scheduled for Wednesday. The commissioners have said they realize any noise ordinance could come with some kinks. Some commissioners have proposed passing a rule, with the understanding the city would revisit it again soon to iron out any unforeseen complications. The discussion on the ordinance is scheduled in the public hearings portion of the agenda, which begins at 6 p.m.
