There was a gentleman outside already riding his weed-eater over the neighbor’s hedge.
Maybe it is my imagination, but the sound of his tool was extremely brutal – but nobody seemed to be disturbed by it. Indeed, our By-Laws specify that the use of power tools may be subject to fines before 7 am only. On Sunday we are allowed to sleep till 9 am.
Demographics of Kirkland (and Beaconsfield) indicate that our citizens may prefer to have more tranquility, so this version sounds better:
No person shall operate, or cause to be operated, any power equipment at the following times:
– Before 7:00 am and after 7:00 pm, Monday to Friday inclusively;
– Before 9:00 am and after 6:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays;
– On holidays when most residents are not working.
