Assemblywoman Pheffer Offers 'No Advertising' Cards
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer is pleased to offer residents "No Advertising" cards for their use in ac-cordance with Chapter 585 of the Laws of 2007.
According to the new law, owners and managers of restaurants and other commercial establishments are liable for dumping menus and adver-tising fliers on private property where that owner has posted a sign stating that the placement of such materials shall be prohibited unless expressly permitted in writing by the owner of such private property.
"New York City residents are being deluged with menus and fliers callously dumped on their doorsteps, in their lobbies and in their vestibules. This new law went into effect on Oc-tober 14, 2007. Now, the proper signage should bring an end to this prac-tice," said Pheffer.
Assemblywoman Pheffer is offering residents 8 1/2" x 11" preprinted signs that inform solicitors that the residents are prohibiting the placing of these advertisements.
If you are interested in receiving a sign, they can be obtained at either of Assemblywoman Pheffer's offices at 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach, 718-945-9550; or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard, Ozone Park, 718-641-8755.
