COMMISSION MEMORANDUM

TO:Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Commission 
FROM:Commissioner Mark Samuelian 
DATE:May  8, 2019
 



SUBJECT:REFERRAL TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD/COMMUNITY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE TO DISCUSS THE WEEKEND MORNING HOURS OF OPERATION FOR POWER TOOLS, MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT, AND LEAF BLOWERS.

ANALYSIS

While the City has in place rules prohibiting construction work until 10 am on Saturday (and prohibits construction work on Sunday) this currently does not apply to the usage of power tools, maintenance equipment, and leaf blowers as these can be used as early as 8 am. Resident quality of life is important, and the noise generated by this type of equipment is at times similar to that of construction work in loudness. As such, the committee should explore enacting the same restrictions already in place for construction on the usage of power tools, maintenance equipment, and leaf blowers.
