    I would love if someone could share some insight…

    The bars & restaurants on East Broadway had garbage, glass, and kegs being collected Thursday night at 4am, Friday twice at 3am and 4am, and last night around 4am.  The noise is beyond anything a person could sleep through even if a jet engine doesn’t wake them.  Is there any type of noise ordinance or process for addressing this issue?

    We are used to hearing it on Sunday in the middle of the night, but 3 out of 4 nights in a row over the weekend was a bit much and twice on Friday night.

    If this isn’t the appropriate place to post, my apologies.
