It's prime time for politics as Yakima County’s official candidate filing week is underway and the the City has a reminder for those looking to post signs.

Let the community know who you are, just don't plant your sign on City property – including fences or utility poles or within City parks.

P.S.  Campaign signs must also be removed promptly after the election. (how often is that reminder ignored!)

There are some other consideration for candidate:

  • 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

For a little light reading, candidates can always review the City codes - section 15.08 to find all the need to know about campaign signs.
