Watch where you post political signs

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The upcoming election means a lot of political signs are starting to pop up.  Remember, no signs are allowed in the public right of way.  The right of way is typically between the back of the curb and sidewalk. If there isn't a sidewalk, the right of way typically extends about 16 feet from the street. 

The correct place to post signs is on the opposite side of the sidewalk, away from the street with the property owner's permission.

The city of Cedar Rapids began removing signs which were illegally posted this week.  Already, it has picked up 212 signs that were illegally posted.  The signs will continue to be monitored and picked up as needed.
