On September 5, 2017, the Council approved Resolution 8891, directing the conversion of the City's gas-powered leaf blowers and string trimmers, and those used by its contractors (with exclusion of the Golf Course) to zero-emission electric tools no later than December 31, 2018. Research indicates that emissions from leaf blowers and other small gas-powered engines have a significant impact on air quality and public health risks. To date, 13 string trimmers, 20 leaf blowers, 2 chain saws, and 2 hedge trimmers have been replaced.
