I received a letter about my yard sale sign, what do I do?

Code Enforcement officers are also on the lookout for signs that violate city ordinances, like signs for yard sales that are on utility poles, the signs that are more than five blocks away from the sale, or signs that are not picked up within 48 hours after the sale.

Signs on utility poles are a danger to utility workers, due to the nails and staples left in the pole after the sign is taken down. Code Enforcement officers send letters to the owners of the signs, usually through the location of the event or yard sale, and ask them to take the other signs down.

Further violations of the code may cause a municipal court citation.
