Police: Use respect with election signs

The Morris Police Department issued a reminder this week that permission is needed for some placements of campaign and political signs.

According to a Morris Police Department release, permits are not required to place a campaign or political sign on a property, but prior to placing a sign on a property, a landowner, the business owner or manager or tenant occupying the property must grant permission.

Additionally, signs are prohibited on state or city-owned properties, including the railroad overpass on Illinois 47, the Interstate 80 overpass and city parks.

Police department officials request that sign-posters are courteous and respectful of the property of others and refrain from placing signs on another person’s property without permission.
