There has been a lot of concern over five letters sent to area landowners for maintaining November election signs past the 10-day post-election deadline for removal. This is a ordinance in the city’s sign ordinance. The letters were sent in response to citizen complaints received by the City. The letters did not address flags, political commentary, (such as I support whomever or whatever cause), but were limited solely to election signs. However, because political speech is the highest form of protected speech in America, the City will not be enforcing this provision in our ordinance, unless the sign is located in the public right-of-way.
