The sign ordinance does not apply only to commercial businesses!
As you are planning garage sales or other events, please keep in mind that city ordinance limits each property to a maximum of 3 per year and prohibits signs posted on trees, utility poles, stakes, fences or other objects when the advertising content of the sign is not applicable to the use of the premise upon which the sign is located.
In other words, you are not allowed to attach a poster to a utility pole directing traffic to your garage sale several blocks away; however, if the garage sale is on your property, you may place the sign on your property only.
Likewise, if you are having a fundraiser, you may not tack signs to poles that are not on the premises of the fundraiser.
If anyone has any questions or comments, they are encouraged to call the code enforcement officer at 997-7521.
