Dorsey said, “I don’t know anybody that’s like ‘man, that noise I gotta listen to while I’m washing the dishes or watching TV, or trying to work from my desk at home or be at peace in my living room or bedroom’ – I don’t know anybody happy about listening to that noise next to them.” Dorsey said that it is a seasonal problem that will have people to complain about and noted that the official should put people in the direction of something quieter and, thus, more environmentally friendly.

Tweet read on the project.
Tweet read, “What would this mean for Lorenz? (seemingly the only landscaping contractor in the entire city) Something tells me they’d pay the fine. Or Hopkins groundskeepers? This is a waste of time” To this, Dorsey had replied, “Boo hoo. I’m not concerned about corporations – including sprawling non-profits – having to change how they operate if it means an improvement for everyday people.” However, a person tweeted to it, “Focus on the big issues of the city. They need your time the most. The kids are literally in crisis. The fire department is poorly paid with a lack of maintained infrastructure. Schools lack support. This isn’t the win you think it is.” Political analyst John Dedie said, “In many ways, this is just a knucklehead idea.” Dedie noted that the city council would be a severe governing body but has some of the most “unserious” ideas. Further, Dedie said, “The idea behind blowing and dealing with these leaves is also to ensure the sewers don’t get clogged up. In many ways, it promotes beauty and landscape regarding how people keep their property.”
