FEBRUARY 27, 2017 - CITY WIDE TREE TRIMMING
The City Street Department Crews will be working through out the city removing tree branches overhanging streets and alleys to prevent interference with traffic and street maintenance equipment. Trees must be 16 feet high above the curb to curb. Branches covering traffic signs and signals shall be removed so as to be easily viewed within a 100 feet of the sign or signal.
It is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain the trees. When this responsibility is neglected, it becomes the duty of the city to clear overgrowth that threatens public safety. This is a clearance procedure and should not be mistaken for a complete pruning of the tree. If this is what you expect, have your trees pruned by a local tree service.
The Street Department will be concentrating on trimming trees along the Snow Emergency Routes throughout the City.
