Who is responsible for maintaining street trees and sidewalks?

It is the responsibility of the abutting property owner to keep the adjacent right-of-way areas free of anything that obstructs or interferes with the normal flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic, unless specifically authorized by ordinance to do otherwise. This responsibility includes, but is not limited to, removal of earth, rock, and other debris, as well as projecting or overhanging bushes and limbs that may obstruct or render unsafe the passage of persons or vehicles, and sidewalk snow removal. The city of Liberty Lake maintains portions of the trail system along Country Vista Drive, Molter Road, and Harvard Road. If you have any questions about maintenance responsibilities, please see the city's Street Tree & Sidewalk Maintenance brochure and/or contact City Hall at 509-755-6700.
