Montclair is set to get quieter on October 15 when an all-out ban on gas leaf blowers begins. A group of landscapers have retained an attorney to try and stop the ordinance from taking effect.
Zoe Cohen, a fifth grader, says people don’t realize how pollution is hurting young people.
Councilman Bob Russo said he and others heard from several residents upset over the extension.
Suzanne M. Grifo says Montclair should hold to its new restricted timetable, and bar gas-powered leaf blowers after Dec. 15.
The new rules further restrict what times of year the blowers could be used.
Some question if the word really is out about the new law restricting when they can be used.
