The president of the National Chamber of Commerce of Merida (CANACOME), Michel Salúm Francis said that downtown residents have the right to express their dissatisfaction with the high decibels of sound coming out of a number of restaurants, bars, shops and other businesses. And of course, this situation has to be regulated by the City of Merida because it affects the health of those who live and work in the Historic Center. Some employees have to work 8-hour shifts taking the high volume sound, which is obviously bad for their health in many ways.
Salúm Francis clarified that there are commercial establishments and self-service stores that play music at a low volume, and that does not affect or bother customers or employees; they commonly use music during the holiday season that is somewhat traditional.
But then he added that some other businesses in the Historic Center play loud music at full volume for hours, which can cause serious ear damage to residents, merchants, employees, customers and passers by.
However, the president of the National Chamber of Commerce emphasized that this issue needs to be solved by municipal authorities, since it is not up to CANACOME to sanction or fine businesses that play music at full volume.
Finally, Salúm Francis stated that the Chamber of Commerce expects good sales for “Valentine’s Day”, hoping that there is no unfair competition with street vendors, who need to be monitored by the municipal authorities.
