Tree Trimming

The City is will be driving around town and noting trees that need to be trimmed back that are hanging over the roadway. Many tree limbs are reaching far out in the street and this causes issues for the maintenance equipment such as the street sweeper and the snow plow. We are asking property owners to trim back branches that are hanging too low for equipment to move underneath. If you cannot trim them back, the City will trim them in order to clear the right of way and reduce the risk of damage to city equipment. Thank you.
