The paper signs advertised for a variety of businesses, bands or concert venues, according to a press release issued by the city.
“The city of Reno and businesses downtown take pride in beautifying the area to attract visitors and residents,” said Alex Woodley, city of Reno code enforcement manager, in the release. “The signs plastered all over telephone poles are not only a visual blight but a public nuisance.”
Under Reno Municipal Code it is unlawful to post signs in the public right of way.
The code enforcement division helps enforce the Reno Municipal Code as it applies to property maintenance, property nuisances and other issues in residential and commercial zoning districts.
