JCP&L: Poles and Posters Don’t Mix

From JCP&L: “It’s that time of year again for Garage Sales / Yard Sales. The attached notice will serve as a reminder for residents not to post signs or posters on utility poles.
Nails, staples or other fasteners used to attach signs to poles can be hazardous to workers who must climb these poles to repair or maintain our equipment. In addition, state law prohibits the posting of signs or outdoor advertising on utility poles. Thanks for your cooperation.”
