When are campaign signs for city commissioner allowed to be in yards? I've been seeing quite a few lately and thought the election wasn’t until quite some time.
According to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, the city’s sign code exempts political signs from the requirement of a permit if the sign does not exceed 16 square feet in area. A political sign that size or smaller may be erected before an election at the candidate’s discretion. Political signs can’t be placed in or on the public right-of-way and should not be placed on any private property without the permission of the owner or occupant of the property.
