City issues ordinance reminder regarding signage

The city of Wills Point issued another ordinance reminder to the public earlier this week, clarifying the rules governing the placement of signs on city, TxDOT and/or Union Pacific rights-of-way.

A post on the city’s official Facebook page Oct. 23 reads in part:

These signs are in violation of City Ordinance and were removed today. Code enforcement will strictly enforce all future signs placed in rights-of-way.
