So folks, it's time to get out there and VIDEOTAPE THOSE NOISE VIOLATIONS...DEP wants to get rid of this provision because past complaints have been of "low quality." Let's show 'em!One assumes that many high-quality examples can be found. There is a full post on the subject here at nycblight.org for those that are interested.
