The City does not handle neighbor disputes or civil matters that do not violate codes adopted by the City. For example, fence repair or property line disputes, tree roots or branches encroaching onto private property and/or causing damage to a fence or structure. These types of situations are a private matter between two property owners, and the City has no jurisdiction. Residents are urged to establish good relationships with neighbors and work together to solve such problems.
