• Signed message requests must be made on the approved form or via email form with completed contact information.

• Non-commercial messages only. No product messages. No for sale messages. No ticket prices.
• Fundraising-type announcements allowed only with the normal payment of $0.00 per message (Patron or Non-Patron).

• Messages to meet local standard of acceptability.
• Emergency messages take precedence.
• Maximum of 10 messages per day, per Patron or purchased message block.
