Poles and Posters Don’t Mix
Mayor Amato would like residents to be aware if you are planning to use a sign to publicize any activity, please post it on a stake, not on a utility pole. Nails, staples or other fasteners used to attach signs to poles can be hazardous to JCP&L workers
climb these poles to repair or maintain equipment. In addition, state law prohibits the posting of signs or outdoor advertising on any utility poles.
If you want to advertise your event, get permission from property owners to post your signs on stakes, and check with Berkeley Township's Zoning Officer on any regulations about posting signs.
