The Code Compliance Division would like to remind residents that the use of noise producing motorized equipment by “for-hire” landscapers or gardeners such as lawnmowers, edgers, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, chain saws, etc. is prohibited on Saturdays and Sundays. It is allowed only on weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Landscaping and gardening activities that do not require the use of motorized equipment are not covered by this time restriction.
For after hours or weekend complaints, please call 760-578-5877
