Code Noise Ordinance Violation
I wrote to Councilman Noel Gallos' office in January about this (see below) and as of the last couple of weeks the noise has returned before 4a each morning.

Original sent to Councilman and his assistance responded. She reached out to PSC because the Ambassadors program said they were not responsible and PSC also said no one from their work staff was responsible. Yesterday morning, the leaf blower jolted me out of bed around 4:00a and I took this photo/video.

Original message on January 10 2018:
I live in district 5 (Fruitvale Village to be exact) near the BART station and since 3:41am this morning, there has been someone from the Fruitvale Ambassadors program that has been continuously using a leaf blower that actually jolted me out of bed. As of the time of this e-mail (5:00a), it is still being used.
This is a clear violation of the noise/nuisance code in the City of Oakland.

Could you please contact someone at the Fruitvale Village Ambassadors program to let them know they are in violation of the code (persistent/consistent noise before 7a). I'm not sure if I need to officially put something in writing or what?

I work everyday and this noise is awful.

I would like someone to followup with me or just make it stop. It is way too early in the morning to even think clearly, let alone write this e-mail, so I'm pretty upset.
