Gas-powered leaf blowers can produce high levels of noise that disrupt the tranquility of neighborhoods, disturb residents, and even have negative effects on wildlife.
The Town is committed to protecting and improving the overall quality of life of our community.
The use of gas-powered leaf blowers by any commercial landscaper, commercial landscape company, or other entity engaged in the business of providing home and yard repair, cleanup, and maintenance services for a fee is prohibited island-wide.
Chapter 101 2A of the Town Code is subject to enforcement by those authorized to enforce. Any person who violates any provision of this bylaw shall be subject to a penalty in the amount of $300 for each violation; provided, however, that a first offense may be the subject of a warning in the officer's discretion.
