Chapel Hill Considers Ban On Gas Leaf Blowers

Posted Updated

CHAPEL HILL , N.C. — The Chapel Hill Town Council will consider banning gas-powered leaf blowers on Monday.

In September, councilman Cam Hill submitted a petition expressing concerns over air quality and noise pollution.

The Town Council referred the petition to the town staff to prepare for public review and input.

Landscapers say a ban would mean higher labor costs and those costs would be passed on to customers.
