Emerald Ash Borer is here and infected trees in the right of way (row) will eventually be removed by the department of public works (dpw) at no cost to the residents. The dpw performs an annual survey and marks trees to be removed with red paint. The survey normally takes place during August and the trees are removed during the following winter months.
Questions should be directed to: Kurt Fredrickson @ 414-352-0080
