Another Friday night in Small Town South of the Mason Dixon... The carillon at the local college is pounding out "The Lords Prayer". I am sure it is audible from wherever you happen to be in the village. These people exist in a universe where it does not occur that not everyone wants to listen to church music on a Friday night. How to even begin the conversation with city government to make this kind of auditory domination a thing of the past?
Well, i guess choosing to not attend church won't do the trick. They'll get to you with a loudspeaker. I can imagine the frustration you must feel. Hopefully, the right person will get involved and shut that mess down.
You might try the noise complaints, but you could find that your town's noise law is specifically written to exclude the college. That's how it is in my town. Check online. I bet you can find a copy of the city statutes.
I once called in a complaint to the city, and they flatly told me that what I was complaining about wasn't illegal and they couldn't do anything. I looked up the city codes online, and called them back with the exact reference to the code that was being violated, and within 30 minutes my problem went away.
