Dodge County Sheriff Talks Placement, Vandalism Of Political Signs

(Juneau) The Dodge County Sheriff recently provided some advice on the proper placement of political signs in advance of the November election. Sheriff Dale Schmidt says property owners cannot place signs in the area between the sidewalk and the street because it is illegal, adding that all sings should be placed between the sidewalk and the residence. Schmidt says if the sign is in the right of way the highway department has the authority to remove it. During a recent appearance on WBEV’s community comment, Schmidt says people who vandalize or steal signs will be cited. Schmidt says people have the right to their own opinions and the right to vote for who they want.
