**The Board of Trustees wants to remind the public that Ohio Revised Code 5589.33 states,"no person shall place within the limits of the right-of-way or affix any sign, poster, or advertisement to any tree or utility pole within the right-of-way of any public highway outside of municipal corporations." This informational release is the result of the increasing numbers of both political and private signage being placed along the roads. Signs placed in the road right-of-ways will be removed by the County Engineer's Office.
