Ohio City Gov’t Says Permits Needed to Put Up “Lost Dog” Signs

The city of Newark, Ohio wants it to be illegal to put up a lost dog sign without first obtaining a permit. The crew on The Five weighed in … and Kimberly Guilfoyle, for one, said of the newsmaker enough is enough.

“I really can’t take this anymore; you can’t look for your lost pet … you can’t have a lemonade stand? What country is this?” she said. “It’s taking the whole community out of our neighborhood … I’m done with it.”

Wild Thing's comment.....

Sometimes communities have to resort to this type of licensing because things get out of hand. I've seen where on every pole is nailed up some sign for lost pets, yard sales, and every other type of small business under the sun. Nothing pisses me off more that to get stuck behind someone slowing down to a virtual crawl so they can read the signs looking for their next yard sale. Thing is, people who put these signs up just leave them there after their event is over, causing the city to have to go around collecting them up.

There is a reasonable middle ground. I don't think a permit should be required for lost pet signs. However, anything of a commercial orientation should be required a permit. My town does not allow any commercial signs on utility poles. Lost pet signs are legal. Weekend garage sales are allowed twice a year along with street corner signs announcing those garage sales. More than two garage sales require a paid permit. Also, those signs need to be taken down by Monday following the event. As a home owner I am very satisfied with my city's and my HOA's rules and restrictions. A lot of freedom is allowed while at the same time reasonable laws/rules keep things organized and provide for a pleasant and comfortable neighborhood. reasonable is the key element.
