The City Forester shall examine the application for removal of a tree in the right-of-way and ascertain whether the statements made therein conform to the provisions of this chapter.  Then the examining official shall bring a proper application to the attention of the City Commission at or before the next regularly scheduled city meeting.  The City Commission shall, after discussion, conclude whether the scenic beauty of the city would be impaired by the removal of the tree(s) and shall weigh the interest of the landowner, considering immediate replacement of the tree(s) and shall then approve or authorize the City Forester to issue in letter format, a written denial, stating the reason for disapproval.  The permit or denial thereof shall be mailed to the applicant no later than three working days after the day the City Commission takes action on the application.
