Tree Program subsidy increased The Rolling Fields Commission voted to increase the City Tree Program subsidy from $200 to $300. Now residents will be reimbursed 2/3rds the cost of a tree & planting up to $300 for trees planted in public view. The City can also provide expert consulting for those who want to take advantage of the program but are uncertain about what is best suited for their property.
Outdoor contracting restricted to weekdays The Rolling Fields Commission unanimously passed Ordinance 13-01 restricting commercial yard services, roofers, or other outside contracting to Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
It is the responsibility of the resident to advise the contractor of the restriction.
