HOUMA — Terrebonne Parish officials are still examining Houma’s noise ordinance to address complaints from residents who say the downtown night scene can get too loud.

Following a Jan. 23 public hearing in which a downtown Houma resident told the council it isn’t uncommon for her windows to rattle at night from blaring music, the council made a motion to address Terrebonne’s existing noise ordinance and decide whether it’s too broad or just needs to be strictly enforced.

On Monday, parish officials acknowledged the noise concern has been an ongoing issue that needs to be addressed.

Police Chief Todd Duplantis said he already has directed his staff to issue citations to those who are in noncompliance with the noise ordinance.
