July 20, 2008 Storm

Filed under: City Business — tkm July 24, 2008 @ 0:0 am

During the July 20th storm many trees throughout the City were damaged and ended up on the ground. One big tree lost several of its limbs in the backyard of one of our mature (86 years young) citizen’s yard. This big tree was growing on City property in an overgrown unkempt alley behind the citizen’s house.

On Monday the mature citizen called the City to remove their (the city) tree limb from the citizens property. The citizen was told to contact someone to remove the tree limbs at their cost because the City was not allowed on private property. The citizen stated they did not have a saw or the ability to drag the limbs to the street. The citizen was then told several times if the limbs were taken to the front curb the City would pick them up. The citizen was also told that since the tree limbs were now on private property they were the problem of the citizen not the City.

Thanks to the citizens son-in-law, who is in his 60’s and a neighbor with a saw the citizen was able to get the tree limbs to the front of the house without the City’s help.

Unfortunately this situation left this citizen with a terrible impression of our City services that are paid for by taxpayer’s money.
