Now that the official candidate filing week is underway Yakima city officials want to remind candidates and their supporters that signs cannot be affixed to city property - including fences or utility poles - or placed within city parks (other than public rights-of-way adjacent to parks).

Campaign signs also be removed promptly after the election date.

Other requirements? Temporary signs can be no larger than four square feet and the height cannot exceed three feet, including the stake.  Temporary signs may be placed on public rights-of-way between the curb and property line. however, the abutting property owner’s approval is required, and no signs are allowed to block the clear view triangle. dilapidated or nuisance signs in rights-of-way must be removed
