The People of Long Beach vs. NYLawProfessionals.com [WE WIN]

Regarding those NYLawProfessionals.com signs that suddenly appeared on those beautiful vacant-lot-chained-link fences, our city responded and are “sending folks after those signs.” A victory for those who don’t want advertisements shoved in your face all day. I plan on referring to this post for all future illegal-advertisement postings- tagged: Not For Rent.

A reader named Matt sent me in some code laws:

Sec. 3-11. – Prohibition.

No person or persons shall placard with show bills, handbills, posters or any printed or written notice or notices or advertisement of any kind whatsoever or attach anything whatsoever of such character to any tree, pump, hydrant, telegraph, telephone or electric light pole within the city, except legal notices and notices and rules made, adopted or enacted by the city council of said city and posted by order of said council.

(Ord. No. 1689/89, § 1, 2-21-89)

Sec. 3-12. – Removal of bills, handbills, posters, etc.

Any person including private citizens may remove and cart away any show bills, handbills, banners, posters or any printed or written notices or advertisements that have been placard posted and/or displayed in violation of this ordinance, except legal notices and notices and rules made, adopted or enacted by the city council and posted by order of said council.

No mention of fences, but it’s still illegal litter. In a way, I’m kind of mad that I even blogged about it since I just put up my giant SEABYTHECITY advertisement. I guess that’s coming down too 🙁

  1. Those signs seem to get a pass.. although I want to get this law passed in NY State:

    You lose 5 votes for every signed left up after election – so if it’s a close race, make sure those signs are down right away!!

    Either that, or you pay a fine for each sign left up after election. Somebody help me draft this law up.

  2. well, there was one left at the intersection of Park and Roosevelt that I saw on my way home this afternoon. might have pulled over and did something, cause it’s not there anymore 😉
