Town Tree Committee coming?
Trees, which have been a popular topic among residents for the last month, sprouted up on the Board of Aldermen’s agenda on Feb. 7.
Bob Barber, who was hired by the town as a consultant to the planning commission, said that body had heard a request from a citizen about cutting down a tree on their property. The tree is on the town’s right of way, but would interfere with the construction of a new home. Barber said resident Sterling Withers made the request and the Planning Commission recommended that he be allowed to proceed.
