The Huntington Town Board has set a public hearing on noise, specifically considering a delay the allowed starting time for the operation of noise-producing leaf blowers on Sundays and legal holidays
Under consideration is a change in start times from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. .
“The goal is to reduce noise pollution, so residents can enjoy their homes in peace, and balance that with the needs of residents to maintain their properties,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, who sponsored the resolution to schedule the public hearing. “After reviewing the codes of surrounding local municipalities, delayed start times for leaf blowers on Sundays and legal holidays appears to make the most sense in achieving that goal.”
The public hearing to consider delaying start times is scheduled for the June 19 Town Board Meeting at 7 p.m.
