We are quickly approaching the long-anticipated street work that will take place as a result of the City Bond that passed in May of 2017. It has been a long process and we are excited that work will be starting soon.
A crucial part of preparing for this work is trimming of trees up to approximately 14’ above the driving surface to make sure that the equipment will have adequate clearance. It is anticipated that this work will start around April 15th.
We have made efforts to get this information out to all homeowners that this would be taking place and that you will see a company traveling the streets trimming trees where needed. The tree trimming work will be performed under the direction of a Certified Arborist by Canopy Tree Service, a company with over 21 years of experience. Trimming will take place primarily on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm. The vast majority of limbs removed will be less than 6” in diameter, unless an exception is sought from the City. Tree wounds will be sealed and cutting tools will be frequently disinfected.
Throughout this project, we are going to do our best to keep everyone informed of what is going on. Canopy Tree Service, who will be doing the trimming, will be placing door hangars to let people know when they will be in their area.
We also ask for your cooperation and patience while this project is taking place. There may be some slight inconveniences, but please keep in mind the long-term goal. If you receive a notice that work will be taking place in your area, please make arrangements to not have vehicles parked on the street, etc. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated and will make the process go much smoother.
Finally, if you have any questions or would like any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the City at 325-247-4158.
