Summer is yard sale season. Many residents hold sales or go to them. The City of Galion supports yard sale activities, but reminds residents that sale signs should not be posted to utility poles or road sign posts.
Under the City of Galion Codified Ordinances, section 541.13, posting signs on such poles is prohibited. The ordinance states:
(c) No person shall fasten, place or in any manner attach any advertising sign, bill or poster of any description upon any pole or standard upon any street or public place.
(d) Any advertising sign, bill or poster of any description maintained, fastened, placed, tacked or in any manner attached to any pole or standard upon any street or public place is hereby declared to be a nuisance and shall be abated in the following manner: The Mayor is hereby directed to remove all signs, bills and posters of any kind or description, attached to such poles or standards upon any street or public place.
(e) The provisions of this section shall not apply to street signs maintained or placed upon poles under the authority of the Mayor.
(f) Whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor.
