Oakland To Start Enforcing Ban On Gas Powered Leaf Blowers

The Oakland City Council agreed to ban both residents and gardening services from operating combustion engine-powered leaf blowers and/or string trimmers in the town last October. 

A six-month grace period has allowed gardeners to make adjustments for the new rule without city enforcement, however starting this April, those who violate the ordinance could be cited! Full details below.
