Signboard announcements

Brunswick Area Television

Policies and procedures


Messages posted on the City of Brunswick Community Information Sign must be related to information, services or events presented by non-profit groups, or public, cultural or educational events benefiting Brunswick residents. If events take place at a for-profit business, or if any fee is involved, you must provide a copy of your non-profit tax status to have your message considered for posting. Groups that are unable to prove non-profit tax status and all personal messages will be denied.

  • No political statements for or against a party, individual, levy, etc. will be accepted or displayed.
  • No personal messages will be accepted.
  • All requests must be made by submitting a completed application form (along with non-profit status, if required), either electronically or in print.
  • All announcements will run for a maximum of seven consecutive days within a thirty day period. Requests must be submitted two weeks in advance of desired posting date.

A maximum of 20 messages will be displayed during one cycle of the Community Information Sign, to maximize visibility of the posted messages. All messages are posted on a first come, first served basis. The City of Brunswick, at its sole discretion, may edit, delete or reject any message not deemed appropriate. Social media advertisements will be considered a personal message unless proven to represent a documented non-profit organization. Groups submitting multiple announcements may be limited to one post per calendar month. The City is under no obligation to notify the organization if their submitted announcement is denied. At any time, the City, in times of emergency or other situation, may override community messages and utilize the Community Information Sign for purposes of providing emergency or other immediate communications to its residents.

Please note:


When preparing your message, it must be brief and to the point. Use the five Ws as you compose the message: what, when, where, why and who.

Message must be kept to a maximum total of 100 characters (5 lines, 20 characters each line), including punctuation and spacing.

Before submitting this form, please be sure:

  • your requested run date is at least two weeks from today;
  • you do not have words spread across two lines.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. Applicant information (applicant name, address, phone, e-mail) is kept confidential.

Your submission of a signboard announcement signifies that you have read and accept the policies and procedures.
