The Palm Beach Town Council considered on January 18 two proposals that, if passed, would limit having fun after midnight in town.

One is a prohibition on the playing of any radio, television, phonograph, compact disc player tape player, musical instrument or other sound-making device audible within any receiving dwelling, hotel or other type of residence between midnight and 9 a.m.

The other is a prohibition on yelling, shouting, hooting, whistling or singing on public streets between the hours of midnight and 9 a.m.

So for those feeling happy after midnight and looking to utter a hoot or two, save it for Fort Lauderdale. It may not fly in Palm Beach.

A decision about the proposals came after this publication went to press.
