Customer Question

My town has a football field behind my house that violates the noise ordain
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: NJ
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?

JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: This field is green acres protected and everything they said about building this field never came true.

How do I file a noise ordinance complaint legally?
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 11 days ago.

It sounds like you have...did you report this to local police (since they are the ones to investigate criminal complaints)?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I have complained to the Mayor and tow committee in writing and ask for a noise control officer which is required according to the code.

The police have the ability to field complaints of municipal code violations. I would file this with the police department.

However, Law enforcement has discretion. That means that they are not required to investigate or prosecute any particular complaint of misconduct. So you can report this to law enforcement…but if they refuse to investigate/prosecute? There is no way to force them to do so.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
