I live a short distance from the hospital. The only time I think badly of the helicopters is when they leave with someone in need of more medical help than the PRMC can offer. I like helicopter rides, but don't want to have to be one who needs this one. Once in a while a second chopper wants to land at the hospital and circles until the first one leaves. Then I am bothered a little when they buzz my house just over 100 feet above. It should be some what higher in my opinion.
What really gets me is that insane noise of the trash truck that picks up medical waste every other morning between 5:10 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. There is no need to be that early.
I am a light sleeper and that banging of the trash bins echoes up the hillside as if it were in my back yard. Who do I have to complain to to get the stopped? I'm sure that with all the regulations in Payson that there must be some sort of noise ordinance with time restraints. Why can't the pick up be the night before when we are all alert and not trying to get a good night's sleep. I should invite the owners to spend the early morning at my house to hear the racket.
I don't mind the helicopters a bit, they help save lives, not pick up rubbish.
