Easements, Right of Ways, and Alleys
Do you know where your property’s water meter pit is located? How about the gas meter, or from where does the electrical service come from? These are just a few of the examples of why easements are so important. Imagine the inconvenience of losing even just one of these services. It is important to understand the necessity of not only a well-maintained lawn, but the easement areas as well.
Easements are areas of privately owned land that are designated for public access and utility service. Keeping these areas clear of vegetation and other obstructions is the responsibility of the property owner. Improperly maintained easements can keep crews from accessing work zones causing interruptions to services. Information on easement regulations can be found on the city website www.greatbendks.net chapters 15.28.080 and 15.70.010
