SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - The Sherman City Council voted to adopt a new noise ordinance Monday.

Sherman City Council voted to adopt a new noise ordinance Monday.

The change would scrap the the current one, which had not been touched since 1991.

The ordinance change comes from a recent complaint from music playing at the Sherman High School practice facility.

The council says they wanted to bring the ordinance up to speed, since the area is growing.

The updated ordinance will include exemptions for things like high school football games and high school bands.

In February the council voted to amend construction hours, allowing more time for workers during the day under the law.

"What we've done now is just kind of redefined some of those and allowed for certain things, and pit it more in an industry-specific noise ordinance," said Sherman Deputy Mayor Shawn Teamann.

The changes will take effect immediately.
