Respected Sir,

I, David Zimmer, am a resident f Sky Height Apartments. For the last several years, this has been a peaceful area with some good facilities like school, parks, hospital and easy transportation. All the residents of this area were happy with their investment as it is rated in top five sought after locality of Minnesota. However, a recently set up bar set up across the street has become a nuisance for the inhabitants at this address.

I am not aware whether the bar is equipped with a legal permit to run the business so near to the public residence. The customers coming out of the bar pass all sorts of filthy remarks towards every passing girl. Even the security guard of the bar doesn't intervene out of the fear for his life. This has really encouraged the inebriated customers to carry on with their eve teasing act. Further to add agony, the customers just put on loud music in their parked vehicle thereby disturbing the peace of the locality.

Few members of our apartment approached the owner of the bar and tried to explain him about the problem caused by the customers, but he seems to be interested just in his business and gave us a cold shoulder. With all due respect, and faith on the judiciary system, I request you to take an immediate step against this shameful act and make it safe for females to walk the street.

Yours truly,
David Zimmer
