All night flood lights

We own a home adjacent to a restaurant, in a mainly residential neighborhood. They have recently installed large flood lights that shine directly into our home all night long. They installed these lights without proper city permit and without a 'lighting plan'. Our neighborhood was, until this time, dark at nightthey had a sign, some reasonable lights that didn't bother anyone previous to the floods. Now it is lit up like a circus.Our Code Enforcer is not seemingly very interested in enforcing our city code which states that any lights from a business may NOT shine and glare directly onto residential property. HAve I any recourse in this? IT has certainly affected our enjoyment of our property, as well as impacting it's valuewho wants to live in a house perpetually lit, after all. Thanks for any insight!
