Our neighbors have moved away, but they continue to employ a gardener, who comes every week. The trouble is that the gardener uses loud machinery, e.g. leaf blowers, chainsaws, lawn mowers, starting at around 8 am Friday morning.
Because our lovely neighbors have already moved, there is no resident to call. We would rather have someone anonymous ask them to delay their machinery use until 8:30 or 9:00 (which is the noise ordinance time?). Are the police the only persons we can call?
I'm sorry, but I don't make house calls. Perhaps you could write a note?
