Tree removal services approved in LC | News
LIBERTY CENTER – The village council on Tuesday approved the use of funds to address village trees.
Maintenance officer Brad Godwin reported that he had received offers to target trees and that the rates approved by the council had been received from Goliath Tree Services. It was reported that the village still had approximately $ 6,600 in its tree fund in 2020, with an additional $ 10,000 expected in the fund in 2021.
Godwin made a list of the trees that needed to be removed in the village. Two damaged trees in Wright Cemetery and a tree on Damascus Street were reported as the top three priorities. The service for these three trees was listed at $ 5,500.
Trees on Mill Street, East Street and Mary Ann Street were also discussed. Godwin added the village had planned to raise the canopies on the park’s t-ball field, but that was a project that could wait until spring.
The council agreed that Godwin, at its sole discretion, may have trees serviced immediately within the $ 6,600 fund for 2020. He can then use the funds from 2021 to reflect on the remaining trees.
In other business areas, residents are reminded that Thursday is the last day for the village foliage collection service.
