§ 127-1 Height and width of division fences.

All division or partition fences between the lands of any two or more adjoining owners, whether built or erected as division or partition fences between such lands and whether the same exist or are erected entirely or only partly upon the lands of any such adjoining owners or along or immediately adjacent to any division or partition lines of such lands, consisting of posts and rails, timber, boards, brick or stone walls, hedges and all other kind or character of fences, shall not exceed four feet two inches in height, measured from the level or surface of the earth and shall not exceed two feet in width.

§ 127-2 Fence location; disagreement procedure.

A. 
The place where any partition fence is or shall be made shall be equally divided, regard being had to the quantity of fence necessary and other conveniences of fencing. Each party shall take an equal share of such fence to make or amend and maintain so that it may be known which part thereof is his own.
B. 
If the parties cannot agree to the making of such division, the Public Service Committee of the Council, being disinterested and indifferent between the parties, shall, on the application of either party, in the presence of the parties if they desire to be present, make such division and determine the part of such fence which each party is to make or mend and maintain, pursuant to the statute in such case made and provided.[1]
