I have recently taken up walking as a means of maintaining my health to a greater degree than I had been.
I walk the trails and the streets of Riverside. I have found on some of the streets, 39th Avenue for example, that tree branches have taken over the street and I am forced to walk on the grass. No big deal I suppose, unless I walk into the branches with my head down.
There ought to be a bylaw in our town concerning overhanging branches. I’m sorry, there is one? Well I’ll be darned.
If we have a bylaw then we should hire a bylaw enforcement officer as they do in the cities. We do have a bylaw officer? My heavens. I wonder if his job description covers wayward branches that imperil pedestrians and bikers.
It was nice to see the town cut back some of the branches on our trails. Now homeowners should do their part.
