Kennewick Campaign Signs Must Be Removed Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA-- The election is over, but there are still some campaign signs out and it's time to get rid of them. The city says Tuesday is the deadline to remove every campaign sign from street corners to your front lawn.

Kennewick city administrators say candidates and other supporters are required to take away all campaign signs one week after the election or they could face a penalty from the city code enforcement.

The city wants to maintain a clean look and says this deadline gives people a nudge to clear away signs in a timely manor.

"It's okay to have those signs up temporarily during a campaign, but certainly they start to become an eyesore once a campaign is over. The community, we want a good look and feel and most people are on board to have those things cleaned up from sight," said Evelyn Lusignan, City of Kennewick.

If signs are still up after Tuesday, the city will first contact the campaign to remove the signs, but if there are continued complaints in a residential area the home owner could be contacted to take away the signs.

Most of the signs are cleared away across the city, but knocked down ones or pieces don't count and need to be completely removed.
