Campaign's over, signs can stay (for now) |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Election Day is over, winners and losers have been declared. But, don't expect the campaign signs to come down from city yards and fields. At least not for a few more weeks.
The city's municipal code requires that campaign signs be removed only after the election is certified. This year, that date is November 27th. Until then, the signs can stay, either in tribute to the winners or as a sad reminder to those who didn't garner as many votes.
What happens if they're not removed by November 27th? Campaigns on a public right-of-way are subject to a one-time sign removal fee of $25 per sign smaller than 15 square feet and $50 for signs larger than 15 feet. Signs on private property could net a civil infraction for the property owner for each sign - and, a separate fine can be assessed for each day the sign is up past the deadline.
