I just found out today that a local city in my county has put a ban on backpack blowers. If anyone is around my area the city is called Yonkers just on the northern border of Bronx. I don't know how you can possibly keep city parks and streets clean without them. Their is a local rally with area landscapers to fight against it. Are their any other people on here affected by this law? What do you guys think about something like this? I think it is ridiculous.
