Vinton County Man Fighting to Get Lumber Co. to Quiet Down
VINTON COUNTY (Tara Morgan) -- No silent night on this Christmas for some people who say a lumber company is just too loud.
Andy Abele reached out to ABC6/FOX28 after he says he wasn't getting anywhere with Industrial Timber and Lumber in Hamden where he lives.
"One of the things about living in a rural area is you have a reasonable expectation of peace and quiet," said Abele.
But Abele says he's been fighting for years to get the company to quiet down its kiln drying facility.
He says it's noisy 24 hours a day 7 days a week, even on holidays.
"I'm sure there are steps they could take to reduce the noise," said Abele.
Abele started a petition a few years ago but now thinks he will reach out to state lawmakers for help.
