Relentless Bandit

Have you seen those Discount Tree Cutting signs? Those plywood signs that are 4 feet by 4 feet in size posted about 15-20 feet high on utility poles throughout the city? These signs have been diligently removed by citizens but this sign bandit continues to post them throughout the city despite warnings from officials. Many of the signs get put right back up where they were taken down.

It is against the law
to post signs like this.

The signs you see below and those signs you see stuck in the ground on city property and posted on utility poles throughout New Orleans are illegal and unnecessary. There are unused billboards throughout the city that could be used for advertising.

UPDATE DECEMBER 3rd

Many thanks to Ann MacDonald and the workers at Parks and Parkways who immediately took action on
some of the signs posted here Nov. 30th.

The complaint went out last Friday and 4 of the signs disappeared right away. There are still several of this sign bandit’s work around (see below) but Parks and Parkways is to be commended for their quick action.

Hopefully, the rest of these large signs will be removed soon!
