I found "it".
Yes sir, this is what I was looking for, copied and pasted as follows.  It's called the Loud Party Ordinance and it comes into play with 5 or more people.  There are usually anywhere from 15 to 30 people at these parties.

Ordinance G-5444, Chapter 2, Article 1, Division 5, Section 2-22, was amended to increase neighborhood safety and reduce threats to the public peace, health, safety and general welfare. The ordinance addresses parties, social gatherings or events which result in disturbing the peace, quiet and enjoyment of our community. These occurrences often lead to excessive noise and traffic, obstruction of public streets, public drunkenness, underage drinking, fights and littering, among other problems.
Some factors which may determine a violation of the ordinance are:
  • Loud music, Band or Disc Jockey
  • Numerous vehicles causing traffic hazards or blocking driveways, streets and alleys
  • Underage Drinking
  • Making excessive noise
  • Fights / public drunkenness
  • Gun shots / fireworks
  • Littering
  • Illegal drug use
  • Squealing tires and speeding through neighborhood streets
  • There are no “allowable” times during the day or night. If the party, gathering, or event is considered a threat to the peace, health, safety and general welfare of the public, anytime during the night or day, the responsible party will be assessed a fee of up to $1,000.00.

 This is exactly the kind of ammo I need against these people behind me that blared their obnoxious music both Friday and Saturday night. If this nonsense happens again this weekend - or any weekend in the coming months, this is what I am going to ask the Phoenix Police to impose upon the owner of that house.  

The 1st, 2cd, and 4th apply to these people.  This will be my call next weekend - actually they are also doing it sometimes during the week now - and my request, impose the fee and these people will start thinking twice about being so obnoxious in their demeanor towards everyone else in the neighborhood.  Now, whether the police will actually do this to them or not remains to be seen, but I will be asking them to contact me the next time this happens versus that rest of the times I did not want police contact - mostly because I wanted to try and go back to sleep.

Okay, plan of action now available without much more than looking on the internet and looking up city codes.

Rained all day today - until just shortly before I got off of work.  For much of the day, it rained hard.  It was very nice and I was fully expecting an enjoyable afternoon listening to the rain on the roof and looking at it coming down out the windows and possibly even getting wet in doing some landscaping.

Instead, it's all of sudden bright, clear skies (this is normal for Arizona, you can go from clear blue skies to driving rain and back to clear blue skies all  in the same day and usually occurs very quickly).

Tomorrow: court.  Although I have no choice but to show up, the lady has stopped paying or communicating with me.  I don't care if it's $20 per month, if she isn't going to communicate then I want the money no matter how long it takes for her to pay it off.

Enough.  Have stuff to do outside.


It's not that I forgot, I just didn't pay too close attention to the date.
This regarding the affidavit I was sent in the mail last month and looking at it again this morning.
The hearing is for tomorrow.
I don't just want to be there, I have to be there.
Fortunately, the hearing isn't too early and hopefully I will be able to leave work early.

Whatever.  Too much on the brain lately, some things getting shuffled into corners and not brought out until - almost too late in this case.

It was yesterday's second theft of money out of my bank account by someone using my debit card number - how they got it I have no idea - making a $200.69 purchase through Amazon - that got me going.

But I don't want to get all riled up again so not going there.  Have to leave for work in a few minutes, anyway.  This weekend has been strange, well actually sucked because of my neighbor's parties and loud music going into the wee hours of the morning.  I was so tired at church yesterday I got up halfway through the service and left.  I pretty much figured about the time the sermon was going to be preached, I would be falling asleep and that wouldn't go over too well.

I'm sure people were giving me looks as I was leaving, oh well and too bad, so sad.

Then there was the call to Direct TV to negotiate my payment.  That turned out fairly well, though I am considering either dumping channels to lower the bill or switching to Dish Network.  I am thinking dump channels as I don't particularly care for Dish Network.



Interesting day. Up early - 4:00, jolted out of deep sleep by the ridiculous phone alarm - annoying as all get out but that's the inten...
