This is video of MARTA workers cleaning outside the Lindbergh Center station at 2am early on Monday December 17th 2012 morning using a very loud compressor/pressure washer and basically waking up the entire neighborhood. I went and asked to speak to a supervisor but I was basically ignored and given no information.
The station is right next door to several residential apartments including Uptown Square, Eon at Lindbergh , Post Lindbergh etc
I'm pretty sure this is in violation of Atlanta noise ordinances unless a special permit was granted.
Please see below Sec. 74-134. Specific prohibitions. Item (10) at nonoise.org/lawlib/cities/atlanta.htm
(10) Blowers, engines, machinery, etc. The operation by any person of any noise-creating power blower, power fan, power tool, air compressor, internal-combustion engine (except trains, motor vehicles or motorcycles), or other similar equipment or machinery which causes noise due to its operation, within 1,500 feet of any residential or noise-sensitive area, unless the blower, fan, tool, compressor, engine or other machine is equipped with a functional muffler device or is contained or housed within a structure sufficient to deaden the noise to the point that it is not plainly audible to a person of normal hearing ability in the residential or noise-sensitive area nearest the source of such noise, between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. on weekdays and 10:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. on weekends and holidays.
