HARVESTED WOOD POLICY
FOR THE VILLAGE OF NASHVILLE
Any tree that is removed in the
Village of Nashville’s right of way, the property owner connected to that right of way has the right of “first
refusal” to the wood accumulated. If a property owner does not want the wood, they need to state in writing that they
are refusing the wood. A notice will be hung on the property that must be signed and returned to the village office within
48 hours so that the village can complete the clean up in a timely manner.
If the property owner elects to receive the wood, they may do so at no charge. The wood must
be removed from village property with in seven (7) days.
If the village does not receive a notice of refusal and the wood is not removed within seven (7) days the
village will remove the wood without further notice.
EXCEPTION: if the wood is lying near a Fire Hydrant, Stop sign, or any other place that creates a
hazard to the community, the wood will be removed by the village immediately.
For all unclaimed and accumulated wood from the Village right of ways and all other
Village properties the Village will solicit sealed bids for the entire inventory of accumulated wood. A notice with expiration
date will be placed in local news paper and bids will be submitted to the Village Hall. When bid is accepted, the submitter
of that bid will be given a date that the wood inventory must be removed. The time frame of that date will be reasonable.
The D.P.W. committee will be responsible for administering the bid process and the D.P.W. director will be responsible for
notifying the person or persons whose bid was selected.
