The City of Battle Creek is putting out a reminder regarding temporary signs, in the run up to the August and November elections.

In a release, the city says that such temporary signs, like campaign, political or business signs, are not allowed to be placed in the public right-of-way, usually the grassy area between sidewalk and curb. A

s well the signs aren’t allowed on traffic or utility poles.

Certain signs, like real estate signs, may be allowed, but the city recommends a phone call to the Planning Division to verify.  If sign owners are in violation, they will be contacted by city staff.

Signs may also be removed by the city, and continued violations might result in citations.
