Council wants to hear your thoughts on election sign displays

When it comes to elections, the one thing you can count on is seeing election signs throughout the community. Do you like where and how they are displayed? Do you think there are too many or too few? Those are the types of questions Council would like you to answer.

An online survey is available from the election sign survey page from January 25 to February 10, 2012 to collect public opinion on the display of election signs on town property (along streets). Currently, election signs are permitted to be displayed 30 days in advance of a polling date and can be placed along all public streets with certain restrictions related to safety.

The feedback from this survey will be shared with Council in early 2012 to help them make a decision about the display of elections signs along public roads and making changes to the sign by-law. This will not affect election signs displayed on private property.
