Police Remind Public of Laws Regarding Campaign Signs
By Emily Roehler, Weekend Meteorologist - bio | email
The North Platte Police Department would like to remind everyone as we wrap up this year's political campaign contest there are a few North Platte City Ordinances that must be followed when distributing campaign signs.
Beginning September 23rd signs were allowed to be placed and can remain up until Friday, November 16th. People who would like to post signs must first pay the city a $100 sign deposit fee. This fee will be used to pay for the building inspector to collect all such signs and destroy them if signs are left up.
Deposits are refunded as long as all signs are collected prior to November 16th.
Political campaign signs may not be placed on any city, county or state right-of-way. There is currently no size limitation but they can not violate clear vision set backs on corner lots.
It should also be noted that it is a criminal violation to damage or steal campaign signs.
You may be cited or arrested for vandalism or theft if either of these occurs.
Please contact City Hall at 535-6724 and ask for Code Enforcement if you have questions or suspect a posting violation. You may also call the police non-emergency number 535-6789 if you suspect a crime has been committed.
