Just how high of a fence is too high? That's a question that the Ranchester Town Council has been pondering recently. Currently, a fence in the front yard can be no more than four feet high and no more than six feet high in the back yard.
Town Marshall John Barker has indicated that there are a large number of residents who are in violation of the Town's ordinance that pertains to the height of fences, walls, hedges and bushes.
Ranchester Councilor Susan Ziegenhorn says the Council will continue to work on revising the town's ordinances.
The Council is in the process of making revisions to the municipal code book. The issue of fence height will once again be addressed at their next meeting Tuesday, August 4th.
