(Photo: Rye might get a leaf blower ban. Some people think they sound this big.) The city council agenda for tomorrow night, April 2, 2008 is out and it is all about fat roads and noise.
A consultant will present on the Boston Post Road "diet" – the plan to narrow the road between the Mamaroneck town line and the intersection with the Old Post Road. Details can be found in our write-up of the January 16th minutes.
Then a public hearing will continue on leaf blowers and noise control. Council is gunning for a season ban on these noisy monsters that kick up all sorts of nasty things including pesticides and fecal matter. Yuck!
There is a smattering of other items including three appointments to the Board of Assessment Review and the authorization to fill two vacant spots in the police department.
