my problem is with our neighbors , they have a mechanic business from home, they have recently started spray painting out on their lawn aswell as melting various metals on an open flame . I already put an complaint in with our municipality at which time they confirmed the home is not zoned for that business . But that was two months ago and still municipality has refused to do anything about this. I have two kids plus there is a creche just two houses down I do not think they should be constantly exposed to all these chemicals. Please could you advise on possible steps I could take. Thank you
