Your cat slips out one night and goes AWOL for two days.
Or you get fed up with the clutter and decide a garage sale is the only answer.
You post fliers on area sign posts and telephone polls with a picture of the cat or the address of your garage.
If you do, you're violating a county-wide ordinance from being affixed to anything public in Nassau County. In fact, residents are even encouraged to remove them.
Some people say handbills are a nuissance that sully the appearance of a neighborhood and end up as debris.
Does that seem right to you? Is there a free speech component to this?
What would the county have us do: Take out an ad? Don't we own the street signs, since we paid for them through our taxes?
What if the cat never comes home?
