Some residents in Burlington are complaining to the city about what they say is a church making some not-so-joyful noise.
The Times-News of Burlington reports that neighbors of the Faith Builders International Church brought their complaints to the city council this week.
They say the noise of singing and musical instruments happens four to seven days a week, sometimes as late as 11:30 p.m.
Burlington Police Capt. Eric Kerns says police have responded to 43 noise complaints about the church since October. Some residents told council members they're moving to quieter neighborhoods.
The church's pastor could not be immediately reached for comment. But Kerns says the church has built a noise-reducing partition around its drum set in hopes of making worship services quieter.
