Whose responsibility is it to keep the sign visible.
My understanding of "easements" is that one may own title to a parcel but easements allow others to use or have access to parts of private property.
- That parcel may include a sidewalk. It must open for use by others for walking. This sidewalk though must be maintained in good working order by the property owner.
- Said parcel may also have a tree. The utility company has an easement that permits access for such tasks as maintaining their lines should said tree be interfering in some manner.
- That parcel may also include a stop sign. That overgrown tree may also be blocking viewing of stop sign.
Does the town perform tree maintenance to keep stop sign visible, or is the property owner required to ensure his tree does not obstruct stop sign.
Feel free to correct any incorrect jargon.
