Welcome to mass!!
Officers have nothing better to do than hassle landscapers!
Fortunately the officer filed an incorrect report so charges will be dropped.
Brrokline is an affluent area but I'm sure they have bigger fish to fry.
It amazes me how people in this state just live to bust each others balls over the most rediculous and petty things. But yet I continue to live here!

So how do they clean walkways and parking lots from May 15 to Sept? Push broom? You'd think the towns folk would protest the added expence for labor to sweep up after themselves.

Luckily I live on the cape where people have a bit more common sense.
But yes in Brookline they are supposed to sweep debris off hard surfaces.
How many guys are using they're mowers to create a sand storm up there on hard surfaces?
Ps. I know the officers are doing they're duty. But come on lawmakers!

What a joke, bust the ass of working people. Why even come up with such a nonsense law, are there not real laws to enforce.

Had a lady several years ago tell me I needed to use a broom, I told her it would be 10 bucks more...she couldn't understand why....I told her it was, all about how much time and effort it takes...
She tells me I outta stop using blowers as they are loud...I tell her I could use scissors or a scythe on the grass to reduce the noise...no more mowing for her...
