Candidates who do not pick up their signs within seven days of the election will face a litter penalty of $1,085. While candidates in the June 22 runoff can leave their signs posted, after the runoff, they will also have seven days to take down their signs.
A rarely enforced law states candidates are suppose to get a temporary sign permit before posting placards, and candidates are not suppose to place them on the right-of-way.
We ask those running for office to abide by these rules and help keep our community litter-free. Besides, what kind of campaign pitch is it to have your name lying in a ditch?
