The Council shall have the care, supervision and control of all public highways, bridges, streets, alleys, public squares and commons within the municipality and shall cause the same to be kept open and in repair and free from nuisances.
Trees and shrubs growing upon or near the lot line or upon public ground and interfering with the use or construction of any public improvements shall be deemed an obstruction under this chapter. Said roots may be removed by the Director of Public Works at the expense of the owner of the property upon which the tree is located should the owner fail or neglect, after notice, to do so. It shall be unlawful for any person, persons, firm or corporation to obstruct or encumber, by fences, gates, buildings, structures or otherwise, any of the streets, alleys or sidewalks.
Persons engaged in the erection, construction, reconstruction, wrecking or repairing of any building or the construction or repair of a sidewalk along any street may occupy the public street space with such building material and equipment as long as is necessary if such persons shall make application to and receive a written permit from the Council to do so; provided that no permit for the occupancy of the sidewalk space or more than 1/3 of the roadway of the public space adjacent to the real estate on which said building is to be constructed, erected, reconstructed, wrecked or repaired shall be granted; and provided, further, that a suitable passageway for pedestrians shall be maintained within the public space included in the permit which shall be protected and lighted in the manner required by the Council. The Council may require the applicant to post a bond in such amount as it deems necessary to hold the municipality harmless under the permit.
