Election day is over, but as you drive around, you probably still see campaign signs along the streets.
FOX 31 spoke to code enforcement today in Lee County.
It's against county ordinance to leave any type of signs on the right of way.
On state roads like Philema Road/Highway 91, code enforcement says that is monitored by GDOT but on county roads, they will start removing them soon.
Code enforcement encourages candidates to get them soon because those who run like to re-use the signs.
"In election time, we try to be generous," Code Enforcement Officer Ben Roberts said. "A lot of these signs behind me here were put out the evening of.the main voting. If they're not gone by the first of the weekend, we'll be making our rounds and pulling the signs."
Roberts says this means yard sale signs too with summer coming up.
