Dover cracks down on illegal signs
DOVER - The city of Dover is cracking down on posting signs on telephone poles and those staked into the ground.
These public signs that have been put on city property are illegal, according to Assistant City Manager Christopher Parker. He also said some pose safety concerns, and others clutter the downtown.
This week, the city will go around and remove illegal signs.
"We want to give a heads up to businesses so that they go collect their own signs. If we collect the sign, it's a $50 per sign fine violation," Parker said.
The problem used to be much worse in Dover, but the city stepped up efforts and holds a sweep every month.
