As a reminder, below is the referenced City Code in regards to the placement of signs within the City of Sedalia, it was noted on Wednesday morning.

There was a brief discussion at the Sedalia City Council meeting Wednesday night brought up by Councilman Chris Marshall concerning improperly placed political signs.

The code applies to all signs within the City’s right-of-way and is utilized to promote public safety.

Vehicle operators must have a clear line of sight to avoid dangerous conflicts with pedestrians and cyclists.

Per Section 64-202 (b) of the Sedalia City Code of Ordinances:

(2) If a real estate sign, garage sale sign, auction sign, notice, political sign, poster or other paper or device, is posted or affixed to any lamppost, public utility pole, shade tree located on the public right-of-way or upon any public structure or building, the building official, or his designee or the city police department are hereby authorized to remove such sign without prior written notice to the owner of the sign.

(3) If a real estate sign, garage sale sign or auction sign, is placed in the ground where the real estate, garage sale or auction referred to in such sign is not located, and such sign is placed between the sidewalk and the street or if there is no sidewalk present, such sign is placed within 15 feet of the street curb or where the street surface ends, the building official, or his designee or the city police department are hereby authorized to remove such sign without prior written notice to the owner of the sign.

(4) If a political sign, poster or other paper or device, is placed in the ground and such sign is placed between the sidewalk and the street or if there is no sidewalk present, such sign is placed within 15 feet of the street curb or where the street surface ends, the building official, or his designee or the city police department are hereby authorized to remove such sign without prior written notice to the owner of the sign.

City officials will not dedicate part of their workday primarily to the issue of sign removal, but please be aware that if they are already in the area and notice a sign incorrectly placed, they will remove it, a press release said.

City officials are also obligated by ordinance to respond to citizen complaints about sign placement by inspecting and determining if the placement is in violation of city code. Contact the Community Development office in order to retrieve removed signs: (660) 827-3000 ext. 1117.
