City to offer free disorderly signs to ease compliance

By Katie Tabeling | Jul 20, 2017

(July 21, 2017) The owners of properties along portions of Coastal Highway, Philadelphia Avenue and Baltimore Avenue are being reminded that they have until September to post signs warning people that disorderly conduct is illegal.

The signs are available to property and business owners at no charge through the Public Works Department.

Ocean City Police Department Records Section Manager Michelle Monico is working with Maintenance Manager Tom Dy to have a supply of signs on hand at the Public Safety Building on 65th Street.

Ocean City Police must approve the sign’s location before placement.

Although the ordinance was passed in 2015 that requires all “public places” with parking fronting Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia Avenue, or Coastal Highway, to have the signs, city officials will enforce the measure this year. Land owners who don’t post the sign can be fined $50, and face a $100 fine if they do not comply in 10 days.

The goal is to have the signs in place before the next car event, H2O International VW/Audi rally on Sept. 30 to Oct. 1.

Business owners can call contact Monico at 410-723-6608 or  MMonico@oceancitymd.gov to coordinate getting a sign and scheduling a meeting to approve its location.
