Studies show definitively that noise pollution is a formidable negative force. It is the cause of emotional distress and often depression. Am I the only person in town who is fed up with the constant din of professional gardening equipment? I am currently on vacation, but cannot enjoy my yard because of it. In the last three days I have calculated approximately 15 hours of ridiculously loud power gardening equipment in neighboring yards. If there is anyone out there who shares my concern, indeed my disgust, please contact Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman about the possibility of legislation requiring noise control devises on the machines, or rotational scheduling ordinances that would afford every neighborhood at least some time free of this pollution. I did so, and he did get back to me indicating that he would follow up on it. Manicured lawns are not worth this price.
