NJ Superior Court Judge Rejects Challenge to Montclair 2021 Leaf Blower Ordinance

NJ Superior Court Judge Lisa M. Adubato rejected a challenge Friday to the Township’s 2021 leaf blower ordinance brought on by landscaping company Vito Dente and Dente.

The current ordinance restricts the use of internal combustion engine leaf blowers to the periods between March 15 and May 15, inclusive, and between October 15 and December 15, inclusive. The plaintiffs sought to enforce a 2000 stipulation of settlement which allowed a greater period of use of internal combustion engine blowers – March 1 through June 1 and October 1 through December 15.
