As part of
our Highway Maintenance Program, we have identified a
need to perform Tree and Brush Trimming within
the road Rights-of-Way. This work will be
done by Township personnel Further, we want you to understand
our process, though cost efficient, is not
a pruning type of tree trimming; it is a very rough-cut. Some
work will be done by hand, however, most will be done by a
Large Brush Cutter.
Should you prefer to do this work yourself, please
contact this office so we can make sure your time line meets
our schedule so the work can proceed. This work is
necessary to provide clearance from the edge of pavement to
the tree and brush line. Authority for this work is granted
under Ohio Revised Code Section 5543.14. This section allows
the Township to perform tree and brush cutting or removal
upon proper notice to affected properties.
Trees and larger limbs that are of fire wood quality or other
value may be placed at the edge of the Right-of-Way
line for your use if you so desire. Your cooperation
in this matter shall be appreciated. The clearing will provide
for a safer and more efficient roadway.
