There were two requests for tree removal in alleys and those making the requests were present; Elaine Conner and Ann Marie Boose. Elaine stated that she approached OPPD about trimming the trees and was told they would not. Ann Marie stated the same in her situation. The clerk had contacted OPPD and was told that they only trim trees in primary power lines and the homeowner is responsible for their own service line or secondary lines. Ann Marie stated that the survey of her property shows that the property line is about three feet inside her fence line. The City Attorney pointed out the ordinance regarding this matter is Section 5.102; Obstructions. The ordinance states that if there is an obstruction in public right-of-way, such as between the property line and the street or in an alley way that abuts your property, it is the property owner’s responsibility to take care of that obstruction. The ordinance states that the utility superintendent can remove the obstruction, but will bill the property owner for the cost. The City Attorney clarified that this is the case even if the alley hasn’t been vacated. He stated this is considered a platted, but unimproved alley. The advantages of vacating the alleys were discussed. Elaine asked if the city was willing to share some of the expense. The ordinance doesn’t allow for that option. Elaine and Ann Marie were given names of reputable tree service companies they could use. No council action was taken because of ordinance 5.102.

the costs are for, those things being: ambulance replacement, liability
