PUBLIC WORKS WARNS OF ILLEGAL BANNERS, SIGNS

The Department of Public Works this week warned those who have placed banners hanging from utility poles or across public roadways, and posters or stickers placed on traffic signs, utility poles or trees, that without a valid permit all of them must be removed immediately.
Advertising devices or political signs must have a valid permit from the Public Works Office of State Planning and Research and the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority.
Acting Commissioner of Public Works Wayne Callwood said those illegally placing signs will incur a $1,000 fine for littering.
For further information call PWD at 773-1290 or 776-6844.
