SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Street musicians and artists who want to perform in Saratoga Springs will have to abide by a new set of regulations passed by city officials.

The Times Union of Albany reports (https://bit.ly/1FvnUci ) that the City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to enact a new busker law that restricts where street artists can perform.

The new law prohibits performances from within 50 feet of another performer or a city event, and it requires musicians to keep the noise level below 80 decibels at a distance of 50 feet. Artists will be allowed to perform from 10 a.m. through midnight.

The regulations were sought by downtown business owners who said the increasing number of street musicians who perform during the warm-weather months was leading to obstructed sidewalks and entrances to stores and restaurants.
