I was walking with my daughter to Ma & I for dinner today and saw a man walking along the sidewalk in front of the new pastry shop that's opening (Karamela) with a saw in his hand. I thought it was strange, but it became even stranger when I saw him right outside the window at Ma & I cutting down branches from the small trees that are growing along the west side of the 1200 block of Michigan!I was preparing to call 611 when shortly thereafter I saw a police car park across the street, and a couple of policemen walking in the direction of Karamela. He was cutting branches that were pretty thick in diameter, and cut several branches off of most of the trees along the west side of the 1200 block. As we were walking home, there were discarded branches piled up beneath each of the trees. I just couldn't believe it!!
If I can confirm that that was indeed the owner of Karamela who was cutting down public property without permission, I will NOT be supporting that establishment, and I hope he's fined heavily.
