Re: 445 Oak Ct - Required 3rd-Party Tree Inspector prior to Excavation

Council, I believe that you specifically asked for a 2nd review and I stand
by my suggestion that Brian hire McClenahans for a 2nd in-person review in
addition to his current Arborist prior to excavation and daily thereafter.

Brian, thank you, but the City Council was clear that there should be a
second Arborist approval.

Also, remember Peter Otaki’s comment directed specifically to you, that you
should treat your neighbors with better care and respect than you have
during this project. You would have been considerate to mail this
attachment to the neighbors when you created it, proactively.
