10.5 Telephone Book (or other materials) Distributed in City Right of Way
Alderman Papa MOVED to adopt the following Resolution:
Whereas, it is the intent of the City of Shelton to keep the City Right of Way (ROW) clean and neat and
Whereas, telephone books and other materials (usually encased in plastic bags) have been dropped within the City ROW by a third party contractor and
Whereas, many of these materials are not picked up by the adjacent homeowner and
Whereas, these materials are subject to the elements and become an eyesore adversely affecting the City of Shelton Anti-Litter efforts if they remain in the City ROW and
Whereas, Section 7-9 of the Shelton Ordinances prohibits littering or dumping and
Whereas, the definition of littering includes newspaper and/or magazines;
Now, therefore the City of Shelton hereby provides notice that the placement of telephone books and/or newspapers, etc. within the City ROW or on private property without the permission of the owner is a violation of Section 7-9 of the Shelton Code of Ordinances subject to a fine of $250.00.
