Ward 4 councillor Bob Inglis says he's been getting plenty of calls this summer from constituents complaining about nighttime noise emanating from school playgrounds. "It appears from the calls I get, kids are playing on the basketball courts," he said. "Obviously we support all the physical activity here, but not at 11 p.m., 12 a.m. or 2 a.m. There are concerns from residents who back on to these properties." In the past, Inglis referred his constituents to the police to enforce the noise bylaw, but now he wonders if the Town could do something more. "It seems to be getting worse, rather than better," said Inglis, noting that the Town sends out parking control officers at night to enforce the wintertime parking bans and wondered something similar could be done in the summer. Town Clerk Karen Landry said she would look into the matter, and "see if we can try and work out something jointly with the police and the school boards."
