The City of Evanston has extended the use of leaf-blowers this season to Dec. 14. According to the City’s leaf-blower ordinance, the seasonal ban on the use of leaf-blowers would have begun on Dec. 5.

The late-October snow put leaf-collection behind schedule, according to information from the City Manager’s office. City crews need the additional time for their work.
