This Gar­nett St busi­ness is a nui­sance to the neigh­bour­hood

Stabroek News - - STABROEK NEWS -

Dear Ed­i­tor, About two years ago the Fire Side Grill and Bar on Gar­nett Street opened for busi­ness. There is an en­closed club and an open yard where food, bar­be­cue and drinks are sold. I live a few doors away from the club.

Every week mu­sic is played very loudly dis­turb­ing neigh­bours. Some­times the mu­sic is played un­til the next morn­ing, at which time cus­tomers are drunk and very noisy, us­ing ex­ple­tives and in­volved in fights with other cus­tomers or em­ploy­ees of the club. Males can be seen uri­nat­ing on neigh­bours’ fences and fe­males can be seen in their un­der­wear.

Dur­ing the Au­gust va­ca­tion, events were held dur­ing the week and pool par­ties were held on Sun­day nights. Firetrucks from the Guyana Fire Ser­vice would come on Sun­day morn­ings and fill the pool.

Now events are held on Satur­days while loud mu­sic is still play­ing dur­ing the week. The mu­sic would ei­ther start early af­ter­noon or early evening. There is no cur­few. My ques­tion is who gave per­mis­sion to host such events and play loud mu­sic?

Ed­i­tor there are per­sons who work, chil­dren who go to school, not for­get­ting the se­nior folks who are at home. When can they sleep? Dur­ing these ses­sions our home vi­brates con­tin­u­ously un­til the mu­sic stops. No one can sleep.

This is a res­i­den­tial neigh­bour­hood and this nui­sance is un­ac­cept­able and un­bear­able.

Ed­i­tor can some­one ad­vise us on a way for­ward? Where is the Guyana Po­lice Force, where is the task force for noise nui­sance? Or do we have to go to court to get an in­junc­tion? Yours faith­fully, (Name and ad­dress sup­plied)
