In an effort to prevent urban clutter and make the city cleaner, the Jerusalem Municipality announced Wednesday that it will distribute dozens of bulletin boards throughout the capital to prevent residents from posting ads on walls and other structures. In a statement, the municipality said the new public bulletin boards will allow residents to post notices in a “regulated and non-messy way.”
The municipality added that posters can only be hanged in designated areas, and that anyone who posts advertisements on walls illegally will be fined accordingly. The municipality noted that the new initiative will also improve cleaning operations, as well as the overall appearance of the streets and public spaces.
