An abutting neighbor to the newly opened at 492 Main Road recently filed an excessive noise complaint with .
Former Tiverton Town Council President Donald Bollin, of 25 Russel Drive, filed the complaint on April 3 at 10:25 a.m. A trial date has been set for Tuesday, June 5.
According to a report filed by Cpl. Daniel Raymond, Bollin claimed the noise from the grocery store's cooling fans was too high, and said the store should be cited daily for the nuisance. Bollin added that he was informed the owner, Thomas DeAngelis, was working to fix the problem. Raymond took noise readings that day that generated approximately 69 decibels.
Raymond returned to the grocery store on April 17, a hot day in the mid 80s, and noted that would possibly cause the refrigeration to turn on more frequently. Since his first visit, Raymond noted a membrane was placed in front of the compressors facing Bollin's property. He took readings between 65.9 to and 66.5 decibels.
Raymond came back a third time on April 20, a day of clear weather in the upper 60s. In addition to the membrane, he noted pieces of plywood were placed at the top of the compressors to abate the noise. The range of noise readings were between 59.5 and 64.8 decibels.
