Helping to Keep You
Damage and/or personal injury caused by tree limbs overhanging public streets can be very costly.
Property owners are responsible to trim trees on their property that hang over the street to provide a minimum of 14' of clearance above the street paving.
Please inspect your trees to assure that limbs overhanging the street provide the minimum clearance.
The Towns ordinance requires its staff to inspect and trim non-compliant trees and bill the property owner for all costs.
IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY, CONTACT THE TOWN ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT FOR ANY TREES WHICH ARE NEAR POWER LINES. THE ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT WILL INSPECT AND CLEAR WIRES AT NO COST.
