Dusti Muniz of Cornwall Ontario Upset at Excessive Overnight Snow Removal Noise – Feb 19, 2014

LTE UThe City of Cornwall has a bylaw, that (in short), prohibits the use of excessive noise at all times in quiet zones, and all other zones from roughly 7PM (or 9PM, and even 11PM) until 7AM.

 

The last three nights there have been constant snow removal teams working outside in my neighborhood, removing snow. While I can appreciate the work that they do – 1AM is NOT the time to be doing this. The clanking, pounding, scraping, beeping, and clashing noises are loud enough to come through the windows (while shut) and still be perfectly distinguishable in my bedroom (which is at the back of the house – whereas the work is out in the front). I work two jobs, and I rely on sleep to not only be able to efficiently operate throughout the day, but to keep my sanity.

 

I feel that these removal crews, with these front loaders, BobCats, and dump trucks (while simply just doing their jobs), are causing more residents than myself a lack of sleep and unneeded frustration. Why can’t these teams work during the day?
