Residents are reminded to keep campaign signs off right-of-ways in Jackson
JACKSON, MI – As the November election draws closer, the city of Jackson is reminding residents about proper placement of campaign signs. The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 8, and many residents are putting up signs to support a political candidate or cause. Previous elections have seen numerous violations of this ordinance, with residents and campaigns placing signs in the right of way and at street intersections. Not only do these placements violate a city ordinance, they can also create safety hazards by blocking views for vehicles and pedestrians, officials said. Prior to the August 2022 primary election, city staff increased enforcement of this ordinance by removing signs illegally placed at intersections and on city property.mlive.com
