Thank you. Unfortunately, if the drumming is done during the day, there is no express law prohibiting it. However, Chapter 16 of the Simi Valley does contain the following provision under Section 5-16.02 which states the following:
The following acts are hereby expressly declared to be nuisances, and any person maintaining or permitting such nuisances, or any of them, to be maintained or to exist in or on his premises, whether as owner, lessee, or otherwise, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor for each day during which such nuisance shall be permitted to be continued:
Other unlawful noises. In addition to conduct which is unlawful pursuant to other subsections of this section, the willful making or continuation of, or causing the making or continuation of, any loud, unnecessary or unusual noise (other than constitutionally protected expressive activity) which disturbs the peace or quiet, or which causes discomfort or annoyance to a reasonable person of normal sensitiveness in an adjacent residence or business affected by the noise;"
The above does say that it is a criminal misdemeanor but, unfortunately, it would be up to the police to enforce that law. If you call them again, you may want to cite that law to them and they may then ultimately give him a citation. Generally speaking though, it is only when there is an express violation or noise late at night that the police get involved. Other than that, your other option is to speak to your neighbor politely about it.
