Yard Sales signs must stay on private property

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.
