Noise Complaint?
By Terri Wenger


October 13, 2009

Well today was a rough one and it's not over yet. We have had a car alarm going off for over 4 hours, and still going. There has been more than one complaint to the police department. A car alarm is loud and very irritating. Migraine Headache Style. But our police department can't do anything about it, why? I have a scanner and believe me the petty tattle telling that goes on and our police have to respond to is terrible in this town. This isn't petty, why can't you file a noise complaint on car alarms? Why do people use car alarms in this small town?

I am very upset and so are my neighbors and I hope no one ever has to go through it. It is terrible.

Question to the community - Would you consider this worthy of a noise complaint, and should the police be able to take care of the matter?
