Opponents Make Second Attempt To Overturn Arlington Leaf Blower Ban
ARLINGTON (CBS) – Four months after the town of Arlington passed a seasonal ban on gas-powered leaf blowers, opponents of the ban are making a second attempt at overturning it.
According to the Arlington Patch, on Tuesday, a town meeting member submitted a petition with 250 signatures to hold a special town meeting.
If the petition is certified, there will be another vote over whether to repeal the ban.
A July vote to overturn the leaf blower ban would have won by a 2-to-1 margin, but supporters did not get enough total votes to repeal the ordinance.
