Q: As a business owner in town, it angers me when other businesses put fliers under the windshield wipers of cars in my parking lot. The fliers end up all over the ground and become litter. Is it even legal to do this?
A: According to town code section 91.04, depositing any handbills, commercial or non-commercial, on public property is unlawful. Section B of the code specifically prohibits placing handbills in or on vehicles. You can find a link to the updated town code at: www.ci. payson.az.us/Departments/Administration/town_clerk.htm. To report violations of town code, contact the Payson Police Department at (928) 474-5177.
