AboutThis historic position was first established in 1693 by a statute which was amended in 1785 and again in 1836.
Upon request of any citizen, the Fence Viewer:
* views fences to see that they are in good repair
* in case of disputes between neighbors, works to resolve their differences
Problems such as size, condition, and distance from property lines are complaints that still arise between neighbors and call for the good offices of the Fence Viewer.
