The historic clock tower may soon ring again in downtown Bracebridge.
This morning, Bracebridge General Committee discussed the future of the chimes following a few complaints to the bylaw office about the sound.
Committee members were informed that bylaw had received a few phone calls to complain about the sound and officials had approached building owner Martin Sheffield to voluntarily turn off the chimes.
Sheffield had agreed, but had later approached the town to apply for an exemption to the noise bylaw.
During the meeting Councillor Archie Buie put forward an amendment that would see the clock tower chimes become permanently exempt from the noise bylaw.
Committee members unanimously agreed to this amendment, and the recommendation will now go to the next council meeting on September 28th to be ratified.
