The City of Elk Point will be doing the annual tree trimming around power lines and streets and alleys.
It is the City’s policy to substantially cut trees back from power lines and from the travel portions of the roadways so that it will not be necessary to do that work again in the near future. Annual trimming at the same locations would not be cost effective. If nearby property owners do not wish to have the area trimmed back substantially by the City, they should keep the trees and brushes trimmed back annually. This includes alleys.
The City may defray the cost of the work, including administrative costs, by special assessment against the property as set out in Section 6.0505. All trees trimmed to allow for 10 feet of clearance on sidewalks and 14 feet over City Streets.
For more information please contact:
Elk Point Public Works Department at 356-3162 or the Elk Point Police Department at 356-2184.
Our Public Works Director would like to remind our citizens to keep their weeds trimmed.
Also, the trees must not hang below 10 ft over a sidewalk or below 14 ft over the streets.
