Rummage Sale Signage

Posted on: November 16, 2018

In an attempt to keep the City of Laurel as aesthetically pleasing as possible, we ask that you refrain from attaching any rummage sale signs and the like on any traffic sign, utility pole, tree or other fixtures inside the City of Laurel. It would be permitted to place a small free-standing sign at an intersection if you remove it after the sale is over.

We will begin removing the signs and contacting the vendor at the address located on said sign. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Mayor’s office at 601-428-6401.
Please help us to keep Laurel, The City Beautiful!!
