“The noise stops when police arrive, but then it sometimes starts up when they leave. Or the next day, it’s the same thing. No fines are handed out or anything that would act as a deterrent. … Enforce existing noise laws [and] levy fines after a certain number of complaints. … It’s unfortunate that I buy a home and cannot enjoy opening my windows because of the level of noise, and that we have people in office who make excuses for these type of problems.”
