Tree Cutting ~ Tree Trimming

REMOVAL OF TREES
City Ordinances exist in Chapter 95 of the Code of Ordinances. 

The City has the responsibility of cutting down/removal of dead or dangerous trees that are within the city's tree lawn.  If you have a request for said service, please contact the Street Department at 765-472-2501.  The request would be taken before the Board of Works and voted upon.  Upon approval of the Board of Works and completion of a Hold Harmless form, the service would be scheduled and performed.

TREE AND SHRUB TRIMMING would be completed by the Traffic Department.  This is only if the shrubs and trees are obstructing streets, alleys, or pedestrian travel.  Should you require this service, please contact the Traffic Department at 765-473-2154.

The Street Department does NOT pick up mattresses, carpet, furniture, tvs, etc.  Miami County Solid Waste has programs for these items.  Call 765-472-7224 for more information.
