"The Higher the Hedge, the Closer to God"

New, 1 comment

Utterances that begin "Only in Southampton" can be followed by any number of things, but this might take the cake: Only in Southampton does one face a $1,000 fine and two weeks' jail time for not trimming hedges annually. The new law, passed yesterday by the Southampton Village Board, mandates that homeowners also get written permission from their neighbors before trimming the sides of hedges facing neighbors' properties.
