Cory Brady, PLA, AICP, planning director, said tree removal permits are required for all trees 10” in diameter or greater.
“Our residents are being solicited by tree-cutting businesses and trees are being removed illegally,” said Mr. Brady.
“Illegal removals are in violation of our code and those violations result in monetary damages ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 per tree in some cases. “
The City contact for permits is Debra Murrell, community development specialist, 867-2716 or email@example.com.
Mr. Brady authorizes or denies the request per the Tree Management Ordinance (TMO).
