along Spellman Street to the south side of his house and that it could ruin his foundation. Mr.

stated that such an analysis would need to be done at the home owner's expense.

Village right ofway,and that all would be done not to disturb them. If that occurred,they would be replaced. The time frame would probably be August,because Layton's are behind due to weather.
