Funds are limited and requests will be honored on a first come first served basis until September 15.

There is a LOT of poison hemlock along riverfront and the greenbelt. Is there a plan to remove this?
On June 11, I requested a permit to remove a dead tree in front of my house. On July 1, I was told someone would look at my tree that day. I've yet to receive the permit or any further information about cost, whether granting the permit automatically grants no parking for the removal, or whether I needed to provide any other information. On Sunday, my new neighbor complained to my wife that a high wind could knock the tree over and cause damage to their house or car. I doubt that's the case, but that's not a good way to be introduced. I have a company lined up to remove the tree. I just need a permit.
