With garage sale season underway, Prince Albert police are reminding the public to heed the city’s Portable Sign Bylaw.
The bylaw states that signs can be placed on private property for as long as the property owner consents, but only in locations where they will not create a safety hazard.
Signs cannot be placed on public property, which includes boulevards, curbside trees, street light standards, public signage, public mailboxes and intersections. They must also be taken down at the end of every sale.
The penalty for putting garage sale signs on city property is a summary offence ticket in the amount of $100 with a $50 victim surcharge.
