Northampton Township doesn't have an ordinance saying how quickly political signs need to be removed after an election, but the Code Enforcement Department says the sooner the better.
The township's Director of Planning and Zoning, Mike Solomon said that, unlike other areas, Northampton doesn't have regulations telling residents to remove political signs within a certain time frame. He said that usually they are removed soon after the election.
"They're taken down relatively quickly," Solomon said. "It's not been an issue that we've had to deal with."
A response to a reminder posted on Northampton Patch's Facebook page encouraged the community to do it as soon as possible because "it is just an eyesore."
Do you think the township should have an ordinance for political signage?
