I have nothing against church bells, but if it’s true they are amplified and going off 24/7, the old coot might have a point. I think ringing the bell on the hour between 7 am and 9 pm should be plenty, or even just when a service is about to be held. And it also depends on how loud they are and what city ordinances allow. I myself have complained to city officials (with no response, of course) concerning the noise caused by overnight deliveries to a grocery store adjacent to my residential neighborhood - banging metal doors, the flatulence of air brakes, the roar of diesel engines, the thump of pallets being dropped, etc.

Apart from chiming the hours, the bells ring the Angelus and they announce that Mass has or will soon begin, so once every hour defeats the purpose.
