8.30.060 – Emergency removal

Notwithstanding other provisions of this Chapter, a Tree Preservation Plan or other approval is not required when removal of a tree is necessary due to an emergency situation posing an immediate danger to a person, property or the community, and where such emergency renders compliance with the permit process unreasonable.  The individual who proposes to remove the tree(s) shall contact the City Administrator or his designee to receive permission for emergency removal of the tree(s).  If the contact is not during business hours, the individual shall leave a voicemail message indicating name, time, tree location, and phone number, and may then proceed with emergency removal.
