City begins clearing alleys

Email News Alerts

MORRIS - Morris city crews have started clearing the right-of-ways in alleys in town, and it's not always making citizens happy.

During the Morris City Council meeting Tuesday, City Manager Blaine Hill explained that the standard alley right of way is 20 feet. It usually falls 10 feet on either side of the alley.


"But if you drive around Morris and you'll see that the alleys are nowhere near 20 feet wide and in some cases are not straight."
