feet from the side property line or three (3) feet from the rear line.

5. Is a permit required for a driveway?
No, however, the driveway is subject to current zoning regulations regarding
thickness, side setbacks, etc. Contact the Zoning Inspector at 257-7216.
6. Why can't I put my garage sale sign on a main road or utility pole?
There are several reasons for this:
1. All signs, even temporary signs, are required to have a permit with
very few exceptions, i.e. political signs.
2. It is not legal to place a sign on someone else's property.
3. It is never acceptable to nail or attach anything to a utility pole or
municipal traffic control sign.
