COSA Mowing and maintenance responsibility for roadsides and right-of-ways

COSA community,

I’m looking for information on how other municipalities make decisions on who is responsible for the maintenance of roadsides/right-of-ways. Specifically:

  • Right-of-ways with boundaries along incorporated parcels of a municipality
    • Does your code dictate who maintains the right-of-way and put the onus on the adjacent land owner?
    • Does your municipality manage vegetation along all right-of-ways within city/town/county boundaries regardless of adjacent ownership?
  • Annexed right-of-ways which run along unincorporated parcels
    • How are decisions made on who maintains these types of right-of-ways?

Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to provide some feedback.
