One of the benefits of living in northern New Jersey is the four seasons experienced by residents.
With those seasons comes landscaping, and one can say that leaf blowing is a three-season sport.
One Morristown councilman believes the noise impact of leaf blowers could be bothering residents, and is gauging the public’s thought on the matter. The town of Morristown’s website now has a survey asking residents their thoughts – in 10 questions – on the machine and how it is used around town.
Aside from normal background information, the survey asks if you, as a resident, are ever bothered by the noise from leaf blowers; if so, when; and if the time of use should be changed from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Finally, residents are given a chance – in 200 characters or less – to opine about leaf blowers.
