How does a neighbor or small group of neighbors go about filing a complaint regarding a local business located in that said community and get results?
There is a particular daytime business (not a restaurant or bar) that is often open early mornings 5-6am and many times doesn’t close up until 10 or 11pm at night -even on the weekends. The issue isn’t the hours of operation as much as the noise that is created at the odd hours by trucks, workers, and trash compactors. Are businesses subject to certain operating hours according to their nature and if so how can we find out what this place’s is?
The second problem with this place is the absurd amount of trash that it leaves on the premises on eventually blows into the neighborhood. This has been addressed before and a half-hearted effort has been made to clean it, but days later it is back to its original state of filth. The largest concern is a significant pile of rubbish accumulating behind the trash compactor which now attracts a a lot of rats.
I understand that any person who moved into the neighborhood should understand the designation of zones for commercial/residential and I fully respect that, but this is more of a struggle of how to live in harmony with a business that doesn’t seem to be operating with respect to the neighborhood and possibly in violation of the law (clearly with the trash portion).
Any advise on how to resolve this without direct contact with the company (since we’ve already attempted that with no success) would be appreciated.
