To keep in compliance with the Wellston Codified Ordinances, the City is asking for citizens to stop placing signs on utility poles and city-owned right-of-ways.

“Any sign affixed to any utility pole or otherwise located within the street right-of-way,” is PROHIBITED. This includes yard sale signs. Here is the link to the ordinance: https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/wellston/latest/wellston_oh/0-0-0-12805

Repeating this ordinance has proven to be unpopular to some residents who are unable to advertise on social media, so our Administrative Assistant has agreed to post a running monthly yard sale list to the City of Wellston’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Wellston-City-Page-112428126951084. This not only encourages residents to follow the proper procedure and obtain a free yard sale permit number, but also helps to reach a broader audience to advertise these sales.

Advertising signs for yard sales are permitted on private property and must contain the assigned permit number.

To receive a free yard sale permit number, call the Mayor’s Office at (740)384-2720.
