More Loud Neighbors
Q:My wife and I live in an older neighborhood with houses that are very close together. Our next door neighbor rents the upstairs of his home to renters. Every Thursday night they have a big card party with loud music until extremely late at night. What recourse do we have? Last night I called the non-emergency number to report this, but I'm hoping that we won't need to do that on a weekly basis. I'll be contacting our neighbors about it, but in the past they have been unreceptive to our concerns.

A: As always I suggest to contact the neighbors and speak with them first. If you find this does not solve the problem you may contact police to investigate and issue a citation if deemed in violation of the loud noise ordinance. Sadly, calling to report each time this occurs will be the only way police can address this when it happens.
