Annoyed

Does anybody know if Franklin has a noise ordinance. My neighbor just finished mowing his yard (It's 10pm). I didn't know if there is anything I could do about it.

I checked the city's ordinance page and didn't see anything about noise on there, but there're probably more than are listed. Here's the link:

ITs your neighbor just go over an have a talk with him about it instead of goin behind his back and calling the police over something so petty that could be resolved between the two of you!!

honestly i doubt that there is really anything that can or would be done about your neighbor mowing the yard. I agree with the previous post...just go talk to your neighbor. The worst that could happen is he may run the weedeater

it might also be that it needed to be cut before he left for a few days or something. Not everyone has time to do everything that needs to be done during certain hours and I agree with seriously, go over and talk to him, why cause a feud, you have to live next to each other. At one time, I was told noise is only contolled after 10:00 p.m.

We have very rude neighbors that blast music at all hours of the night. We ended up calling the police a couple of times. Once they never showed, and the other time they said all they can do is ask the neighbors to turn it down but can't make them. Luckily when they knocked on the neighbors' door, they turned it down. That was a year ago and they haven't played music that loud since.

I'm glad you are not my neighbor, whether you know it or not some people have to do chores when they can. buy some ear-plugs.

Although mowing ones grass in the dark seems a bit odd.(to me anyhow) If your neighbor was done by 10 p.m. (on a Saturday night)it probably didn't affect any noise ordinances. A previous poster was right, go talk to your neighbor instead of sneaking around plotting revenge.

You guys are a bit too forgiving when it comes to this stuff. I have kids that get woken up by this noise on a nightly basis, and once they wake up after an hour or two of sleep,they can't go back to sleep very easily. I know what the person that started this thread is saying. There's a time for all that stuff to get done. God made light and dark for this very reason. It being a Saturday wouldn't have been so bad, but my neighbors do this sort of idiotic mess every night and my kids have to go to school the next day.

My neighbor likes to have parties every Saturday night. Usually doesn't stop until about 3am. I have talked to him about it , but he says that he has to blow off steam from his stressful job.
My neighbors suck here

My neighbor did things of this nature...I politely asked him to be considerate of my children and early work schedule..his response was to mow EVERY night, rev his engine up in our joined driveway at midnight..drunk, yell obscenities at my children, drive his mower to the property line and shine the lights in our house, shine his car lights in our house and leave his car alarm on while yelling and laughing...drunk..all night. He did this for a year or so and we ignored the childish fits..but then he went too far..and I waited until he revved it up DRUNK again..ran outside and took pictures..called the police FINALLY and he got a good old DUI. Some neighbors are good and just simply do,things when they have the time. Others are evil and only happy when tormenting others.

Go get yourself several construction lights and direct them all towards the neighbors house and never turn them off! Buy a generator to run them so the constant noise is also an annoyance! Never ever have a cross word with them or act like anything is wrong! See what animals are allowed for you to have and have fans blowing odors and flies constantly towards their house as well! I could go on and on but, I think you'll get my point.

I agree about the noise keeping everybody up when have to work and keeping the kids up I'm going thru the same thing in Owensboro and the cops doesn't do anything but I looked online and I think if the noise I'd on goin they can put a monitor up to track the noise and if it's too loud all the time it can be s fine
