Trimming Trees & Brush


The Fire Department has requested that the city remind residents of their responsibility to cut & remove vegetation from road rights-of-way because:




(1)  Storm blow-down of trees and branches causing road obstructions hinders emergency vehicles from accessing those residents that need help.

(2)  Trees and branches that fall and cause injury to cars and/or pedestrians carries liability for the property owner.

(3)  Vegetation extending into the road right-of-way may cause sight obstructions and is considered a hazard.

(4)  Property owners are responsible for damage to emergency vehicles from overhanging branches or other obstructions along their driveway/property.


Please help rescue and emergency personnel help your fellow residents by maintaining clear, unobstructed property rights-of-way by trimming and removing potential problem vegetation.
