Tonight: Tree protection issue returns to Woodside


Along with further discussion on penalties for illegally cutting down a heritage tree in Woodside, the Town Council meets at 7:30 p.m. on May 10 to consider action on two ordinances.

■ Updating laws on the use of fire-resistant materials in accessory buildings such as trellises, carports and gazebos.

■ The placement of waterline backflow preventers, devices that protect the public water supply from contamination from water stored on private property.

The meeting takes place in Independence Hall at the corner of Whiskey Hill and Woodside roads, with the discussion on trees scheduled to follow public hearings on the two ordinances.
