New: Ban on Gas Powered Leaf Blowers starting Dec 16 2023

On November 3, 2020, the village passed Local Law #8 2020 banning gas powered leaf blowers from December 16, 2023. After that time, according to the law:  

Persons found guilty of violating any of the provisions of § 148-4, except Subsection B(10), shall be subject to a penalty of not less than $50 nor greater than $250 for each and every violation. Any person found guilty of violating Subsection B(10) and any property owner or tenant on whose property such a violation of Subsection B(10) occurs shall be subject to a penalty of $100 250 for the first offense, and $250 500 for any subsequent offense.

Gas-powered leaf blowers pollute the environment in 3 ways: exhaust emissions, noise, and particulates/dust blown into the air. Per the Department of Environmental Conservation website: "Emissions from gas-powered leaf blowers are substantial. The amount of CO (carbon monoxide) emitted from a typical backpack leaf blower for just 1 hour is equal to CO coming from the tailpipe of a current year automobile operating for over 8 hours. For the other pollutants, the amounts are even greater." Click here to learn more about a state bill prohibiting gas-powered leaf and lawn blowers.
