Garage sale signs go down in Titusville

Some residents in Titusville have noticed their garage sale signs missing from street sides. 

City representatives said it’s no accident: those signs aren’t supposed to be there. According to city code “snipe signs,” as they’re called, are not allowed on any public property or right of way.

Garage sale signs or other temporary signs can go up on private property with the owner’s permission, but city leaders said if they are placed in the public right of way they can be removed by anyone.

A city representative said they often let garage sale signs get by for a few days, but not always.

In recent weeks, Titusville Police posted pictures to social media of a large pile of signs collected from street sides in a crackdown.
