Why doesn't Freehold Township buy some clippers and start going around the neighborhoods and clip all the branches that are hanging over the wires......so when the snow comes and the branches pull the wires down and we are without electricity for days and days and days???????? Why do you need leaf blowers now.....middle of October ..... which means by the time they get them.....because everything is done slow here it will be SNOW TIME!!!!!! Typical Government....although small....mind set the same......START CUTTING BRANCHES!!!!!
