Hi. I live right behind this restaurant/bar. Every night they would play loud music. Starts at 9pm-2 or 3 am. I’m okay with it because it’s a restaurant/bar. I cannot stand it when they opened the back door. The music was extremely loud where I cannot sleep in my bedroom. I don’t want to call 911 since is not life threatening. Who can I contact in the city?
