Property Owners Must Keep Sidewalks ClearPosted on August 15, 2019
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Sidewalks Must Be Kept Clear of Vegetation from Your Property
We would like to remind all homeowners who have sidewalks adjoining their property that it is their responsibility to keep these sidewalks clear of branches from trees and shrubbery growing on your property.
Any over-hanging tree limbs must be trimmed to no lower than seven (7) feet above a sidewalk and shrubbery must also be trimmed back to allow clear passage. This is for the safety of all pedestrians.
The Dept. of Public Works cannot enter onto private property to trim vegetation, which is the responsibility of the homeowner. A property owner who neglects this task, which is required by town ordinance, is allowing a safety hazard to remain. Thank you to all affected property owners for your anticipated cooperation in heeding this safety reminder!
Superintendent, Montgomery Dept. of Public Works
