leaf blower noise

Hello MPK City Council,

    A number of my neighbors and I have been discussing how irritated we all are about the noise level from the leaf blowers used by almost every gardner in town (with one known exception). Now that I’m retired and home most of the time, the almost-constant buzzing of these things is nearly unbearable. (And yes, the gardner we hire to do our house also uses a leaf blower.)
    Seems ironic that we should have to speak louder to move our city in a quieter direction, but there it is. Please consider the idea of banning gas-powered leaf blowers in Menlo Park. Other towns have moved in this direction already.
