Valdosta City Leaders Ask That Campaign Signs Are Picked Up

By  | 

Valdosta, GA - There seems to be a bit of a littering problem in some local areas: Lingering campaign signs two weeks after the election.

Now Valdosta city leaders are asking folks to please take them down. But if they're on private property there's nothing they can do about it according to Georgia state law.

The city and county used to enforce a one week grace period after elections but a change in state law ended it.

"Personally, everybody has their own opinion but I think immediately after the election they should have someone come pick up the signs," said Jeffrey Williams, Lowndes Co. Resident.

City officials say campaign signs are not allowed on public property ever.
