CITY TO REMOVE TREES ON FAYETTE STREET

The city of Cumberland has decided to remove all 7 sycamore trees along the north sidewalk of the roadway in the 600-block of Fayette Street, because the tree roots are interfering with the storm conduit. The weight of the trees and the growth of the roots have buckled the sidewalk and have grown over the curb of the street. The Street Department will remove the sidewalk slabs for stump grinding tomorrow and Friday. The trees will be removed next week, weather permitting.
