PETITION FROM COUNCIL MEMBER CAM HILL:
Tonight I ask that the Chapel Hill Town Council consider the following:
Whereas the air quality in our town is decreasing.
Whereas noise pollution in our community worsens daily.
Whereas airborne dust and debris caused by leaf blowers is a threat to public health and safety.
Whereas many communities throughout our country (including Los Angeles Co., CA) have banned or restricted the use of gasoline powered leaf blowers.
I propose that we ban the use of gasoline powered leaf blowers within the city limits of Chapel Hill.
This 27th day of September, 2004.
