The Ada County Highway District in a press release reminded candidates and residents that political campaign signs must be removed from the public right-of-way within 48 hours after the May 17 primary election.
The rule is part of ACHD’s temporary sign placement ordinance
. For this election, that means signs should be removed from the right-of-way by the end of the day on Thursday, May 19, the press release said.
Campaign officials and candidates are responsible for collecting their signs after Election Day. If a sign is determined to be in a spot where it’s not supposed to be, ACHD will remove it, the press release said. Signs collected by ACHD crews are brought to the Ada County Highway District Headquarters in Garden City, where owners can make arrangements to pick them up.
The full policy can be found on ACHD’s website
. For questions about sign placement, residents can contact the Ada County Highway District at 208-387-6100 or by using the District’s TellUs form
