Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci issued a friendly reminder to residents and landscapers operating leaf blowers in the Town of Huntington.

To file a leaf blower noise disturbance complaint, use the Town’s At Your Service portal on the Department of Public Safety page: http://www.huntingtonny.gov/public-safety
To speed up the Town’s ability to enforce Town Code, leaf blower noise disturbance complaints should include the following information:
- Date(s) and approximate time(s) of violation(s)
- Address where the violation is occurring
- Whether it is known if the property owner or a landscaping company is operating the leaf blower
- If a landscaping company is operating the leaf blower, if possible, include the name and any known/observed contact information for the company
The Town Code permits the use of leaf blowers for two hours per day on weekdays between the hours of 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM and for one hour per day on weekends and legal holidays between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Leaf blower usage outside of those hours and time limitations will be deemed a noise disturbance.
