PERU – Businesses and residents in Peru will be allowed to petition for louder and longer music. At Monday night’s city council meeting, officials decided to take the requests on a case by case basis, after receiving a request for longer music hours and louder than the city’s decibel ordinance allows. Chief Robert Pyszka says those who are granted approval and violate the allowed time frame, or go over 55 decibels, will be ticketed. Mayor Kolowski says there will be a zero-tolerance policy and if there’s a first offense, future requests will not be granted from that individual or business.
