Kalamazoo residents given 30 days to remove political yard signs

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The election is over. Now, it is time to remove all those political lawn signs.

In Kalamazoo, they give residents a little time to take care of it.

"They are allowed to stay up to 30 days following the election," City of Kalamazoo Zoning Inspector Bobby Durkee tells WKZO.

An ordinance in Kalamazoo provides for that time frame, though Durkee said they do not usually have to work overtime enforcing it.

"We find, typically, it's usually within a few days they go away," he said.

Often, campaigns organize to pick up the signs as part of their regular post-election activities.

Dave Palowski of the Kalamazoo County Democratic Party tells WKZO residents can drop off their political signs at their office, located at 3254 South Westnedge in Kalamazoo.

They will recycle the wire and return the sign to the appropriate candidate.
