Town needs to do something about extreme noise

Here we go again trying to get something done about the extreme noise and vibration coming from the pile driver working at the marina.

Dear Editor,

Here we go again trying to get something done about the extreme noise and vibration coming from the pile driver working at the marina.

I phone and email the town but no one answers our calls or acknowledges our emails anymore.

We can’t even hear our TV when they get it wound up. I can’t believe a developer can come into town and do this to the long time small family businesses and citizens.

The bylaw officer said there is nothing they can do — there is no noise restriction on these developers. Also the developer told me they can do what they want from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Well the town better come up with something to protect citizens from this ridiculous noise, make them tarp it in or something.

We are going to have to put up with this all winter, everyone is complaining. It scares my grandkids and makes them cry, people walk by plugging their ears and our customers are leaving mad.

We need some help here, we must have some rights not to have our family business trashed!

Randy & Cheryl Maki,

Edgewater Inn
