FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers city council members could start discussing ways to make the downtown area quieter, late at night.

Many people living in the river basin complain that some bars and clubs are too loud. Police say most of the time the clubs stay in the legal decibel level, but people living nearby say the legal sound limit needs to be changed.

Peter Martin lives downtown and says, "I can't sleep. It's that simple. It is just that loud. With my doors and windows closed, I can still hear it. You can still hear the beat."

If noise from bars and restaurants is disturbing people but is under the legal sound limit, police can only ask the businesses to turn the volume down.
