Newton, KSQuiet Posted On: 9/6/2014 9:02:10 AM
I have heard that the police keep Newton quiet by enforcing noise ordinances. I was wondering if that is true. Wichita police do not enforce noise ordinances. I believe I would rather live in a place with a higher crime rate than a place when the noise is unbearable most of the time.
Wichita, KSNot a Nice Place to Live Posted On: 9/6/2014 8:54:18 AM
For years I have been listening to my neighbor beat on his drum set. As he's gotten older, he's also gotten stronger, and beats on his drums even harder. I talked to him about it one day as the noise from his drums was driving me crazy. He said he didn't realize it was that loud as he wears noise cancelling headphones while he beats on the drums. He said he "was sorry", but he went back to his house and started beating on the drums again. The people that live on either side of his house don't appreciate the noise either, but don't want to rock the boat. I finally called the police and this individual seems to start drumming with minutes of me getting home. I can be gone for hours and he doesn't play, but when I get home he starts immediately. The police say that the prosecutor will not prosecute as he is a juvenile and that I just have to live with it. So, if you don't mind being in your house and someone in another house beating on the drums whenever they feel like it (currently I believe he's allowed to beat his drums from 7am to 10pm each and every day) then this is the place for you. If I ever get enough money to leave Wichita, I will be gone so fast. This "nut job" neighbor sometimes beats on his drums 8 or nine times a day (anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour each time). I can honestly say that over all the years he's been beating on the drums that he has not even learned an entire song.
