Telling on Taylor

I'm calling to speakout and complain about the loud music and drugs throughout the late hours of the night on Taylor Street. The cops have been called and nothing yet has been done. I am going to continue to call until this gets stopped. Some of us work for a living. You are disturbing the peace and it needs to stop.
