On Tuesday I had a bit of time so I printed some flyers, bought a staple gun and stapled about five up between 39th & 32nd on Hawthorne.
Today I went back to do more extensive flyering and I noticed that none one of these flyers survived. Most of the telephone poles in that area are either completely devoid of flyers of just full of completely shredded ones (that was the case on Tuesday when I put them up, too). Almost nothing remains.
Who is doing this?
Is it PGE? Every sign has a warning not to post flyers on the poles, as they are PGE property, but the signs themselves have all been stapled through hundreds of times.
Is it the city? Someone mentioned something about a new policy on telephone pole posters recently...?
Is it just local business owners trying to clean up their area?
