Notice of tree removal
The town board has decided to remove two maple trees from the town hall property due to excessive decay. This decision was made after the town board received a Basic Tree Assessment Form from a licensed Arborist declaring them a liability risk on town property. The two maples to be removed are located on the East side of the town hall, adjacent to and above the public sidewalk.
