Longhunters resident wants city to handle barking dogs problem

'I'm not trying to be a trouble maker, I don't want to bother my neighbors in any form or fashion and I expect the same from them. By adopting an ordinance that protects the citizens of Columbia the Mayor and City council will be demonstrating that the working class people in Columbia matter.' - CHRIS BENNETT

Personal Commentary

I believe this is a really good thing for the citizens of Columbia. We as property owners and tax payers deserve a right to peace and quiet in our homes and neighborhoods.


I live in Long Hunters subdivision and have lived here for 14 years. Up until a couple of years ago I really enjoyed living in my neighborhood. I have some really good neighbors but now I have some really bad neighbors.

As I sit here and type this I am listening to their dogs barking and howling. I live in a newer brick home, it has to be raining really hard for me to even know it is raining outside. Their dogs are so loud that I need a TV or radio playing quite loudly all night long or I can't sleep for the dogs barking. Even at night when I am watching television I have to have the volume really loud to muffle out the noise level of these animals. Their unkept trash blows in my yard. This REALLY upsets me.

With my job I work in five counties and I do hours of paperwork at home because of this. I also teach at Somerset community College and it takes time at home to prepare for my classes. It so annoying and loud here at times that I am unable to work here.

I believe that if most people have a full time job and go to it every day they won't have time to harass their neighbors and if they have to get up early in the morning to go to work they won't let their dogs bark all night and disturb their neighbors!

As a taxpayer and property owner of the City of Columbia I feel we should get some protection from nuisances especially in the neighborhood that I live in. I'm not trying to be a trouble maker, I don't want to bother my neighbors in any form or fashion and I expect the same from them.

By adopting an ordinance that protects the citizens of Columbia the Mayor and City council will be demonstrating that the working class people in Columbia matter.

Thank You
