At least one City Councilmember in Long Beach is a hater of joy. CBS2 News reports that Councilman Dee Andrews will propose a plan next week that will regulate the noise created by ice cream trucks.

Andrews described the jolly jingle loosed by ice cream trucks in his neighborhood as a "nuisance," and went on to say that this indicator of summer funtimes has been getting worse and worse over the years.

"Residents' peace and quiet is disrupted by a constant procession of trucks playing various songs at high volume levels," he said in the motion.

Andrews says that his proposed regulation will simply bring ice cream trucks into compliance with noise regulations to which all residents and businesses in the neighborhood have to adhere.
