Time and Place Restrictions Help Moses Lake Control Political Signs

The city of Moses Lake has found a way to restrict the placement of political signs after the city was flooded with political signs in city parks and other city-owned property.

Moses Lake City Manager Joseph Gavinski, an attorney, says the city placed restrictions on political signs planted on city-owned property three years ago.

You can restrict or control the placement of signs when you look at time, place and manner restrictions and go through the process of analyzing what that all means.

Gavinski says the city has designated areas where political signs can be placed on city property, but restrictions on size and placement come into play. And if the sign owner wants to place a sign on city property the person is asked to sign an agreement that says they will be held responsible if city property, such as irrigation lines, are damaged.

Gavinski says Moses Lake even worked with the ACLU to refine the policy to restrict the placement of political signs.
