This message is to address and inform everyone about the laws regarding the posting of materials on public and utility property and the removal of graffiti requirements.  

Under Pennsylvania law, it is illegal to post signs on poles under PA Title 18 §6905.  It is a summary offense and only allows for the exemption for municipalities posting official notices.  This includes any flyers or signs regardless of the message.  We will try and help spread a message that is important to the community, i.e. missing person, pet, or personal item by utilizing our media and/or social media resources, we just need to be informed of the issue.  

The Borough also has a graffiti removal ordinance that is attached in PDF format to this posting.  

Thank you,

Bellevue PD
