Loud bullhorns used by church

October 26, 2006

Still nothing has been done about the noisy Bull Horns at Divine Savior Church. Since Ed Reyes refuses to change the municipal code, no one can help me.

Now, its worse. They start the bull horns at 7:55 am. Now they go off at 7:55, 8:00, 9:00, 12:00, 3:00 & 6:00 and sometimes at other times too if they feel like it.

They blast their bells, chimes and organ music from 4 bullhorns on top of the church. It is not real. It is a tape recording that is very loud and annoying.

The LAPD noise enforcement team has been trying to help but so far has been unsuccessful. That I can understand because the municpal code Section 5, 115.02b is unclear. It says churches can use their bells for what is "reasonable and customary" but it does not define what that means.

Please, please help me, STOP THE BULLHORNS!!!
