Local Enforcement Officers Making Sure Political Signs in Check Amid Election Campaigns

First... election campaigns-- in brownsville are...amping up.

A frenzy of political signs...keeping code enforcement officers on their toes.

Channel 5's sierra pizarro spoke with voters who worry the signs send the wrong message.

It isn't the writing on the signs voters are paying attention to.it's the number of them that line the streets while drivers pass through.

The countdown is on.

We need to get out there and vote.

Election day is less than two weeks away.

As voters make their mark, candidates place their signs.

We see that eagerness for people to want to create more exposure for the candidates.

Some say the boards do more than create exposure.

Sometimes, the signs can be overwhelming.

It is distracting.

The placement of the signs blocks visibility for drivers, when they're turning.

When they put them on the right-of-way, people can't walk on the sidewalk or grass and they're forced to walk on the street.

At the city's central boulevard polling station over thirty political signs line the street.

Over here, across the street, you have too many of them.

Some candidates have more than one, that's overpowering.

One should be enough.

Oridnance enforcement units keep the signs in check with these rules: political signs must have the landowner's permission...be outside of the public right-of-way... be no more than eight feet long...and have an effective area no bigger than 36 feet.

This year, about 50 violators were caught.

There's a number to call to report signs.

It's 546-4357.

Callers will need to give a general location.
