Linn County prohibits political signs in county right-of-ways

Posted: Updated:
LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -
Campaign season is underway, and in the interest of public safety, the Linn County Secondary Road Department wants to remind people to keep objects, including political campaign signs, out of county right-of ways.
On Linn County rock roads, the typical minimum county right-of-way is 33 feet from the center of the road; on paved roads, the distance is 50 to 60 feet from the center of the road. 
The Secondary Road Department recommends that if you're unsure of the right-of-way width, put your sign along fence lines or beyond the county ditch. 
Signs that are placed in the right-of-way are subject to removal; the signs that are removed are taken to the Secondary Road main shop yard in Marion. If your sign is removed, you can go pick it up weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Identification is required to pick up political signs. 
If you have any questions, contact the Linn County Engineer and Secondary Road Department at (319) 892-6400.
