Election Season

As the election season nears, here is a reminder on where campaign signs are alllowed and where they are not allowed.

 

Permitted locations with the permission of the property owner or lessee:

1.  Residential property.

2.  Agricultural land belonging to a family farm operation as defined in Iowa Code section 9H.1.

3.  Property leased for residential purposes including, but not limited to, apartments, condominiums, college housing facilities, and houses.  However, signs may only be placed on the portion of the leased property space that is actually occupied.

4.  Vacant lots owned by a person who is not a prohibited contributor.

5.   Property belonging to any business, association, or organization that is not a corporation, financial institution, or insurance company.

6.  Property leased by a candidate, campaign committee, or an organization established to advocate the nomination, election or defeat of a candidate when the property is used as campaign headquarters or office and the placement of the sign is limited to the space that is actually leased.

7.  Property owned by the state, county, city, or other political subdivision if the property is made open and available to any person from the public to lawfully place any type of sign.

Prohibited locations for candidate campaign signs:

1.  On any property without the permission of the property owner or lessee.

2.  Property owned by the state or the governing body of a county, city, or other political subdivision of the state including all property considered the public right-of-way unless the property is made open and available to any individual or group from the public to lawfully place any type of sign.

3.  Property owned, leased, or occupied by a corporation, financial institution, or insurance company except when leased as campaign headquarters or a campaign office and the placement of the sign is limited to the space that is actually leased.

As a general guideline:

Utility poles are a good indicator of where City right of way begins.

Campaign signs cannot be in the City right of way

Keep signs on the property side of poles and sidewalks

If no sidewalk, then within 25ft of the house they are placed on

No signs in City parks

No campaign materials at City owned property

 

If you have any questions, please contact City Hall 259-8342

Council Meetings In Person

Council meetings are moving to in person at the fire station until City Hall renovations are complete.  They will also be on the Freeconference site we have used before. However, that will not be interactive.  It will be for viewing only.  We do not have the technology in place at the fire station to make this happen.  Also, it may be difficult to hear as we will be using a laptop to broadcast the entire meeting.  All of the log in information remains the same.

 

The phone numbers to call in are
