Ask Mr. Answer Person: "Who's in charge of making sure political yard signs are taken down?"

John e-mails: "Could you please advise what city department is responsible for enforcing the ordinance regarding political sign removal? Sadly, those residents who drive Locust Road between College Drive and the city limits not only have to see one of the most scenic roadways in the area regularly littered with trash and beer cans, but for the last month have endured unsightly, giant political signs hanging from the picturesque bluffs.  The election is over.  By the way, I'm an independent who believes all political signs are visual pollution.

Mr. Answer Person says: "It's been a very busy couple of weeks, with elections and football games, etc.  So, fortunately, the problem John mentions seems to have resolved itself now.  But this is a good time to mention that the city's ordinances give property owners one week after the election to pick up their yard signs.  The ordinances put the City Clerk's Office in charge of enforcement, so it you have a neighbor who still hasn't taken down their yard signs, contact City Hall.
