Poles and Posters Don’t Mix

Posted: May 25, 2016

It’s that time of year again for garage and yard sales and with that comes a reminder from the utility companies…do not post signs or posters on utility poles.

Nails, staples or other fasteners used to attach signs to poles can be hazardous to workers who must climb these poles to repair or maintain equipment.

In addition, state law prohibits the posting of signs or outdoor advertising on utility poles.

If you are planning to use a sign to publicize any activity, please post it on a stake, not on a utility pole.
