Following the adoption of By-Law 456-9 amending By-law 456 at the September council meeting, it was announced that the use of leaf blowers is now permitted from November 1 to November 30 and that gas-powered leaf blowers and vacuums will be completely prohibited as of November 1, 2023.

Leaf blowers may be used between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Under no circumstances are leaves to be blown onto curbs, sidewalks, streets, or other public property, nor are leaves allowed to be blown onto any other private property.
