Proper pruning helps ensure safe passage

Property owners are urged to keep their shrubs and trees along sidewalks and alleys properly trimmed to ensure safe passage by pedestrians and motorists. Blocking the public way not only creates hazards, it also is a local ordinance violation. Residents whose plantings create issues are asked to prune them back, but may be ticketed if they don’t comply. For more information or to report an issue, call 708.358.5700 or email
