Here’s How Milton is Working to Get Rid of Illegal Signs

 

In the hopes of decluttering streets, the town of Milton is working to get rid of illegal signs.

In a recent press release, the town of Milton announced that it is moving ahead with its 'sign by-law blitz'. 

"Illegal signs are removed by town staff, and companies are charged a fine for illegal signs along public property including street boulevards, roadways and parks," notes the release.

Town staff has already removed more than 900 illegal commercial signs - signs that did not comply with By-Law 15-2005 - in under one month.

Staff will continue to remove these types of signs on a weekly basis throughout the spring and summer months. 

The town is reminding residents that commercial lawn signs are only allowed on private property, not on roadways, boulevards, or in parks.

Anyone who finds a sign in a place where it shouldn't be can use the 'myMILTON Click & Fix' feature to report it.

When it comes to removing signs, the town charges $81 to cover the cost of removal and disposal of illegal signs. In addition, violators can also be charged according to the 'provincial offenses act' and may be summoned into court.
