Street Tree Authority

Posted on 14 October 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Conflicting ordinances have left control over street trees up in the air. The Boone Park Commission this week received an opinion from City Attorney Alan Schroeder, noting that the ordinances deal with both the Tree Board, a responsibility of the Park Commission and the Council’s authority through Public Safety and Transportation. City Administrator Luke Nelson sought the opinion in preparation for expected discussion about planting trees on city parking, the area between the street and sidewalk. Tree related matters are usually handled through the Urban Forester, a position included in the responsibilities of John Rouse, Parks and Public Works Director.
