NEW ORLEANS -- Council members are looking for the public to make some noise Monday about a new noise study.

The City Council began trying to re-work the city's noise ordinance in 2011. That's when they hired a Mississippi musician to conduct a comprehensive study on the issue.

But the problem with sound isn't just about bars that are too loud, but also delivery trucks and even construction.

That's why City Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer wanted to take a comprehensive look at it.

'We need to be very careful that we don't construct an ordinance that would harm the things that make this city the way it is,' she said.

'We need a little more consistent enforcement,' said Dave Woolworth of Oxford Acoustics. 'I think it's sort of a no-brainer if you talk to people in the city.'

Woolworth will give a full presentation on his report Monday at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall.

Council members are looking for feedback from the public on it.
