Springfield Aldermen will finally get a chance to sound off on a when the sound should be turned off for outdoor music events.
Mayor Mike Houston introduced an ordinance Tuesday that would make the cutoff time at midnight for outdoor amplified music.
Last summer Houston made waves after announcing on 970 WMAY's Jim Leach Show there would be an earlier cutoff time of anywhere between 10 and 11:30 ... an announcement made just before the annual SOHO Music Festival.
Houston rescinded the plans and said he would later have an ordinance to put on the books what time amplified music should be turned off.
Aldermen will vote on the proposed sound ordinance in two weeks.
