So much for karaoke night
Shhhh, do you hear that? Well, if you are in Sullivan’s Island, S.C., what you will not hear is the sound of singing late at night. In late June, the town approved an ordinance that prohibits singing, whistling, hooting, or hollering, particularly between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., according to the South Carolina Radio Network.
“It’s basically an amendment to a noise ordinance. It gives the police department a little greater ability to control noise on Sullivan’s Island,” Town Administrator Andy Benke told the network. “Part of our responsibility is to protect the quiet repose of the neighborhood. If someone is singing to the top of their lungs at 2 o’clock in the morning, it gives the officer a means to deal with it.” Sullivan’s Island Town Council just approved the ordinance for its third reading. Final approval could be reached next month.
