City of Paris reminds candidates of political sign guidelines
The City of Paris is reminding all candidates running for public office to direct their campaign personnel and affiliates to follow all “Political Sign Guidelines” as outlined by state law and city ordinances.
Signs are not to be placed within the Right-of-Way of any public street or public property (the Right-of-Way line is approximately eleven feet behind the curb or edge of pavement).
Other guidelines for Political Signs are as follows:
- Such signs must contain primarily a political message,
- Be located on private real property with the consent of the property owner
- Not be located within the public right-of-way.
- Political signs must conform to State Law as to when they can be placed and removed before and after an election date
- No sign shall be erected or placed within, or project over any public sidewalk, street, alley, right-of-way, or other public place
Any sign violating State Law or City Ordinance may be subject to violation notices, fines, or removal by Code Enforcement.
