Police remind people it's illegal to post signs on public property


The Havre Police Department reminded people in a public service announcement that it is illegal to post signs — including yard sale and garage sale signs — on public property including poles, electrical boxes and traffic lights.

The announcement cites Havre city ordinance on the topic:

“5-1-7: Posting of Bills:

‘No person shall, within the limits of the city, post, paint, or distribute any advertisements upon any private wall, door, gate or fence, or upon any curbstone, flagging, gutterstone, sidewalk, lamppost gateway, telephone or telegraph pole, fireplug, or any public building of the city, or upon the public grounds, or the wooden or iron railings or fences surrounding the same, of the announcement for sale or barter of any description of merchandise, or of the treatment of any disease, or of any public amusement or lottery, or nay notice of general public character, or any advertisement whatever, without the previous written consent of the mayor, or upon any property belonging to any person without the previous written permission of the said person. Ord. 46, 8-20-1906)’
