Alamo Township

ALAMO TOWNSHIP

During rain, windy conditions, and with leaves, trees/branches become heavy and their strength compromised. Trees may impact the traveled portion of roadways. Also, please be aware of sagging or broken wires in trees as it can still be “live” with a deadly amount of electricity. In these cases, RCKC must wait for utility company assistance. When possible, RCKC teams have moved fallen trees outside of the road right-of-way to the adjacent property, clearing the traveled portion of our roads for the safety of the public.

The relocated trees from the roadway will be left for the property owner’s use and/or disposal, except in those instances where RCKC holds title to the entire road right-of- way (typically in platted/subdivision areas). A pink flag will be left near the relocated tree informing property owners to contact the RCKC within fifteen (15) days for tree removal options. The property owner may submit a service request that the fallen tree moved by the RCKC, county, municipal or township police, fire, emergency or public utility personnel be cut and stacked adjacent to the public right-of-way, or may request that it be removed. The RCKC will return to address the relocated tree as prioritized within other RCKC operations. Please remember trees/brush that was not relocated by emergency personnel, are the property owner’s responsibilities. For any further questions, please see our Roadside Vegetation
