Mérida, Yucatán, (November 04, 2021).- At least four establishments have been suspended for not complying with municipal provisions on noise control, informed Federico Sauri Molina, head of the Urban Development Directorate of the Merida Municipal government.

What we have done, regardless of the suspensions, is to stop their activity, soundproof the place. But, most of the time, it’s as easy as lowering the volume of their sound system, ”she explained.
