“Surely something can be done about this?”

“Dear PoPville,

There has been a beeping noise for 1 whole week. We can’t find the source!!! Similar to a dying battery in a smoke detector, maybe?

I live in a small converted condo- just 6 units. None of the folks in this building can explain the beeping and we’re sure it’s a neighbor who’s house is unoccupied.

Not sure who to call- non emergency lines go to 911. We don’t have the neighbors phone number. Is there a DC dept that could help? What on earth do we do? It’s been ONE.WHOLE.WEEK.
