Spring has arrived and with it a colorful, healthy crop of signs for garage sales and other events.


Signs, including advertising signs for Garage Sales, are not allowed in the public right of way in Storm Lake.  The public right of way is generally described as the area between the sidewalk and street.


The municipal code notes that placing such signs in the right of way constitutes a municipal infraction.  Addresses on such signs assist with issuing infractions.


To help keep our City Beautiful we would like to remind you that special event signs should be removed not later than twenty-four hours following the end of the special event. Special event signs are not permitted on public property.
