Mayor Pasquale Menna has a message for certain businesses in town: Your days of free advertising on Red Bank property are numbered.
He says borough-owned signs particularly parking signs downtown have become inundated with stickers, many of them touting local businesses.
“It’s becoming increasingly prevalent,” he said. “It’s not fair, it’s unsightly, it’s an environmental issue and it’s a quality of life issue.”
Menna wants to do something about. At last week’s council meeting, he suggested that the borough create an ordinance that requires whatever entity that can be traced to the “graffiti” remove it in a timely fashion or face a penalty of some sort.
