Clearing Fallen Trees from Roads
We are repeatedly reminded how many great people we have
in the Town of Harrison. Countless examples of neighbor helping
neighbor and pitching in for the greater cause. This positive sense
of community is one of the reasons Harrison is a great place to live.
One example where we see this is the clearance of fallen trees from
our roadways. While the local electric company clears trees fallen
on power lines and town officials often clear downed trees not on
power lines, we know many folks take it upon themselves to clear
the road. They have the ability, equipment, and good sense of
community to want to help out. Many times we have no idea who
has done the work. However, we urge caution when power lines
are involved -- please leave those for the professionals at the power
company. Also you are reminded that the town does not assume
responsibility when you act on your own.
