Default Neighbor complaints and harrassment issues

Indiana

I have neighbors that continue to file complaints against me for burning in my back yard. The town sent a copy of the ordinances that are related to burning. We are not in violation of any of them. The town manager came to inspect the burning area and said he would prefer if we didn't burn due to the location of our house because a neighbor is on oxygen, but we can burn logs in small amounts. When we decided to burn a small pile of logs he came to my house and threatened us with a fine if we didn't put it out after storming up to my mother who was unpacking her car. When I went to the town hall to address the situation I was waiting for it to open and he approached me in the street. After I said I felt I was being discriminated against because there is no actual burn ban in the town he said "if it's such a problem for you, you should move because your neighbors are not going to stop complaining about everything you do."

Is this considered harassment, and he is allowed to tell me I need to move if I don't like the complaints against me when I was doing nothing wrong according to their ordinances?

I wish to inform you that you in absence of violation of law you cannot be held liable for anything. In this regard if official is trying to say to you to move then you may file a complaint against official. You may also seek court order injunction whereby you may seek restraining order against such harassment caused by neighbor along with official.

If the city officials will not be reasonable, you may ask the court to intervene and issue orders to all parties. If you are not violating the law then you are protected.

All that it true above but sometimes you just have to be a good neighbor too.
IF there is somebody that truly is suffering, it may be worth considering voluntarily curbing your burn activity.

My neighbor plays really loud music every morning at about 11 am for about 15 minutes.

I am retired and it bugs me but it is just 15 minutes. It happens EVERY day.
I think she is getting ready for work at that time or something.

What legally can i do? The LL says he cant do anything.

If this is the case you can apply for a protection order from the authorities for not interfering your rights. It is good to consult a lawyer in this matter.
