Should Alexandrians have the right to use gas-powered leafblowers to clear away their yards or are they a noisy nuisance that should be blown away?
Well, right now the city can’t ban them even if they wanted to, but the city’s legislative package includes a request for localities to get permission to prohibit the use of gas-powered leafblowers as both an environmental hazard and a nuisance for neighbors.
In a Waterfront Commission meeting last week, William Skrabak, deputy director for infrastructure and environmental quality, said it was probably unlikely that the city would even obtain that permission this year. But Skrabak said the goal is to start a conversation about the issue that could bear fruit down the road.
