Time Limit on Display of Political Signs

The August Primary has come and gone, but quite a few political signs are still being displayed across many areas of the U.P.

The City of Marquette has specific rules relating to how long these signs can be up. The signs are listed as an exemption in the city’s sign ordinance. However, there are time limits on the display of the signs. They are permitted to be up 45 days before an election, and must be taken down five days after the election has taken place.

Enforcement activities in regards to the sign ordinance being ignored is determined at the discretion of the City’s Municipal Civil Infractions Bureau.
