Signs Placement Related to the Primary and General Election

Yard SignsClarification has been requested regarding the placement of signs within the City of Hart related to ballot proposals and candidates for office.

Per Ordinance 1259.03 (h) of the City Charter and Code of Ordinances the following language applies to signs within the City of Hart:

Smoke Testing of the City Sewer Lines

The City along with Prein & Newhoff will be conducting smoke testing of the sewer system starting September 4 until September 28. This testing is done to find defects in the system - the smoke is not harmful and will not get into your house unless your traps are empty. POUR A GALLON OF WATER INTO SELDOM-USED DRAINS TO PREVENT THIS. It is normal to see smoke exiting the sewer through roof vents.
