The short answer is "No". Remember, we are your backyard neighbor and a property owner. The property around the reservoir is not an easement, but owned by the city. However, we understand that you want to be able to see the reservoir and we can work with you to create a "view corridor". Selective removal of lower tree limbs and trimming of bushes may be allowed, with the proper permits.
What about trees that are leaning or already on the ground or in the water? We will meet with you to discuss your concerns.
To discuss your concerns and set up a meeting, call 757-441-5678.
