Noise from this machinery prompted a call to the Town of Cormack from a neighbour. Now Lee Harvey says he will go to Municipal Affairs over the issue.

CORMACK Tired of the noise behind his property line, a Cormack man says he’ll bring his complaint to the Department of Municipal Affairs after hearing nothing from town officials.
Lee Harvey complained two weeks ago that industrial noises from a property adjacent to his own on Willow Avenue had been disturbing his neighbourhood. As of Friday the sounds of scrap metal being torn apart and hauled away from the old sawmill continued. Harvey is still looking for answers.
“I was gone for a (few days) and came back and heard the noise at quarter after seven in the morning. Just bang! Bang!” said Harvey. “It’s still there, work is still going on and if the town won’t do something about it, I’ll just have to go somewhere else.”
The lot is being cleared for use as a storage area and maintenance facility for a wood lot for a Deer Lake company.
Cormack town manager Tracey Hewitt said earlier this month that no laws were being broken, as Cormack has no noise bylaw.
Hewitt could not be reached for comment Friday but earlier this month said the town is monitoring the situation, which is temporary and will result in a cleaner lot.
