The Chattanooga City Council is one step closer to establishing it's "Amplified Music District."

Tuesday City council voted to approve a 250-dollar application fee for venues wanting to become part of the district.  At the last meeting, council approved an out of pocket expense of about 18-hundred dollars that venues will have to pay in addition to the application fee.

Councilman Moses Freeman says he's glad to see the issue moving forward.   "I supported it because I was looking for a solution to the problems that neighbors were having within the area, mainstream and part of the district."

Freeman says the council still has a few more steps to take before the process is complete liking hiring a sound engineer.
