Signs in the Right-of-Way
It is illegal under state and local law to place any signs in the right-of-way of roads. The signs will be removed and the offenders prosecuted. These signs pose a safety problem for drivers and pedestrians. Signs distract motorists, create blind spots, and present hazards for maintenance crews. The nails, screws and tacks used to place signs on utility poles are hazards for utility workers. In addition to the safety issue, the signs detract from the appearance of our roadways making the City and our neighborhoods look trashy. Please report any violations to Code Enforcement.
