San Mateo considers leaf blower regulations

The San Mateo City Council will consider three options on Monday for regulating noisy leaf blowers.

The options range from a complete ban on blowers, to a ban on only those blowers that exceed 65 decibels, to merely heightening enforcement of the existing ordinance.

Right now leaf blowers are banned on Sundays and holidays and must be used at low speed the rest of the time.
