City Property

June 11, 2008

In front of my house there’s a sidewalk. It’s “city property”, but I’m responsible for maintaining it! Strange set-up. The city asked me to replace a piece of it and I dutifully obliged. On the other side of said sidewalk there’s a maple tree. It’s huge. It’s also city property. It dumps an enormous amount of stuff in my gutters. I’ve asked the city several times to trim it down. They don’t do it. I can’t threaten them with a fine or imprisonment. So the double-standard is to be expected.
