City nixes yard sale signs

No yard sale or other signs will be allowed on any tree, lamppost, hydrant, telephone or electric light pole in Preston this spring, summer and fall.

City council president Saundra Hubbard said city crews and other officials will remove these signs when they appear. She referred to a city ordinance that has been in place for a number of years.

“No person, firm or corporation shall paste, post, paint, print, nail or otherwise attach, any handbill, sign, poster, advertisement or notice of any kind upon any tree, lamppost, hydrant… telephone pole or electric light pole, or upon any private wall, door, gate, fence, walk or porch within the limits of the city without the consent of the owner,” the ordinance states.


Hubbard said city crews have installed a notice board on property adjacent to City Hall on West Oneida where these types of signs will be allowed.

“We want to clean up these types of postings that have been attached to power poles along State and Oneida streets in past years,” she said. “We have directed city public works crews and other city officials to remove any of these signs from power poles and other non-designated areas as soon as they are discovered.”

If residents want additional information they can contact Hubbard or city office personnel at city hall, 852- 1817.

In other action at Monday’s city council meeting officials agreed to allow Ireland Bank officials and employees to paint restrooms at the city park this summer as a service project.

The council tabled action on a request by CenturyLink to install and maintain buried fiber optic cable along West Oneida.
