Code Officers: Election's Over, So Take Those Signs Down
City code enforcement officers will be removing signs from medians and will cite residents if signs are not removed within seven days after the election.
The election is over, now it is time for the campaign signs to go.
Clearwater Code Enforcement officers are out in force removing campaign signs from medians and other rights of way Thursday.
"We are going out in teams this morning to remove political signs and others from the (right of ways)," Terry Tuenis, code compliance manager, said in an email.
Other right of way signs will be removed daily.
Other political signs will get a Notice of Violation after seven calendar days if the property owner is non-responsive to removing it. They are to be removed by Tuesday, Nov. 13.
To let code enforcement officers know about sign violations, call (727) 562-4720, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, or send a Citizen Request online regarding the complaint.
