Salem wants consistency in rules for signs
However, a bigger problem may be enforcement of the existing town ordinances that prohibit temporary signs from being placed on public property. According to Town Manager Keith Hickey, it is a matter of having enough resources for enforcement of the town ordinances."Right now, if you go down Route 28, you have signs lining the road saying fishing and hunting expo, fishing and hunting expo, fishing and hunting expo," said Selectman Pat Hargreaves at this week's board meeting. "They are on snowbanks, they are all over the place."
Hickey said there is a policy that the town's zoning administrator follows but noted that the resources to enforce the policy fell victim to budget cuts several years ago.
Hickey said Assistant Town Manager Leon Goodwin will look into the issue.
"We will do the best we can and try to address it," said Hickey.firstname.lastname@example.org
