Salem selectmen tackle sign issues
According to Selectmen Chairman Pat Hargreaves, recent discussions have focused on where political signs can be placed and what happens to them when they end up where they shouldn’t be.
Any illegally placed signs that are picked by the Public Works Department are taken to the ballfield near the transfer station, where the town legally has to keep them for seven days past the appropriate election before it can dispose of them.
Selectman Everett McBride said the signs have been stored at the field for years.
“There are a lot of candidates that should be aware that you don’t put them in the right of way,” he said. “I’m sick and tired of (candidates) putting them where they are not supposed to be.”
“I’m not paying one of our employees to guard other people’s signs,” he said. “They are breaking the law by putting the signs where they’re not supposed to be.”
