The city council of Pleaston, Calif., has voted to ban gas-powered leaf blowers within the city, according to a Dec. 14 report from The Independent. City residents who use gas-powered leaf blowers could be cited starting in June.

The council approved the ban on a 4-1 vote. Vice Mayor Jack Balch voted against the ban and said he worried how the ban would affect the small businesses dependent on gas leaf blowers.

The sale of gas-powered small off-road engines will be banned in the state of California starting Jan. 1.
