Willmar's city officials say no campaign signs allowed in right of way


WILLMAR -- Willmar officials will be enforcing city ordinance that prohibits the placement of campaign signs within the right of way of city streets. Beginning in about a week, city staff will remove campaign signs that they see are placed illegally in the right of way.

Bruce Peterson, director of city planning and development services, says the problem of illegally placed campaign signs surfaces every election year.
