Recently, you may have seen myself or another city officer out of our vehicles with a big yellow stick, as we have been measuring the limbs of the trees. There is a city ordinance on how low the limbs a tree can hang over the streets and sidewalks. City Ordinance Chapter 12.36 states: “It shall be the duty of the owner or agent of real estate in the city abutting upon a public way to keep all private trees located on and all street trees adjacent to such real estate properly trimmed in a manner that they will not interfere with public travel upon the public way. Such trimming shall be done properly and scientifically by a person familiar with the proper manner of doing such work, except as allowed by section 12.36.310. Any part of a street tree or private tree projecting over a street or alley that: 1. Hangs or protrudes less than 14 feet above street level. 2. Any part of the tree projecting over a sidewalk less than 8 feet above sidewalk level. 2. Interferes with the visibility of any traffic control devices or sign. 3. Obstructs the light from any street lamp 4. Violates the city’s clear sight ordinance.” Under the same chapter it explains that it’s the duty of the owner to remove dead trees, limbs and shrubs. The ordinance also tells the steps you would need to take cut down a live tree. For instance, if the live tree happens to be a street tree, you need to notify the city public officer (Chief of Police) in advance of trimming the tree. We will be measuring trees for the next week or so and will be notifying the land owners if there is a tree or trees that needs to be trimmed. Once the owner has been notified they will be allowed a reasonable period of time agreed upon by the owner and Public Officer to get the tree trimmed. If the owner has not trimmed the trees by agreed upon time frame the owner may face prosecution. the public Officer may also declare and emergency abatement if the tree is not trimmed. This means if the owner of the tree does not take action right away the Public Officer can have the tree trimmed or cut down and any costs incurred will be assessed to the owner of the tree. As always, if you have any questions or want us to come measure a tree that you think might need trimmed, you can contact the Police Department at 336-2141.

Beginning February 20 thru March 05, The Seneca Police Department will join other Law Enforcement agencies in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. In 2015, 13 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 40% of those teens were NOT PROPERLY RESTRAINED. In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the tristate area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicle. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is speeding, texting or failing to buckle up. “Even one teen death is unacceptable. Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off, and always buckle up.” Chief Jordan Weaver
