City reminding residents of campaign sign rules

— With Election Day less than three weeks away, the city of Steamboat Springs is reminding residents and business owners of the rules on campaign signs.

The signs do not require a permit to place them on private property, but they cannot be placed in the public right-of-way.

Tenants also must get permission from the property owner to place an election sign.

All signs need to be removed seven days after the election.

“If you are in doubt of whether you are in the public right-of-way, a general rule of thumb … if your sign is in front of, around, or on any kind of utility box, pole, sidewalk, fire hydrant or public sign such as a stop sign, speed limit sign or any other sign erected by the city, the county or the state, your sign is most likely in the public right-of-way,” city staff wrote in a news release about the rules.

Residents with questions about sign rules can call Code Enforcement Officer Barb Wheeler at 970-871-8274.

To reach Scott Franz, call 970-871-4210, email or follow him on Twitter @ScottFranz10.
