LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - With the exception of Candidates taking part in the May run-off election, candidates have 14 days to remove their political signs. If signs are not removed within that time, the candidates can be fined up to $2,000. Ramon Chavez is Laredo's interim director of building services. He said the ordinance was passed in 2012 to keep the city clean.
"Basically that's what it is. We just want to maintain a good image of the city. Especially, with all these signs being placed throughout the city. And again, making sure that no sign is placed on the public right of way."
There are three races that will end in a May run-off. Those candidates are allowed to keep their signs up, until after that election.
