The City of Chiefland is going to crack down on signs placed on city property, according to statements made by Mayor Teal Pomeroy at Monday night’s commission meeting.
The issue came up after Chiefland resident Dr. Keith Richeson, during public comment, asked commissioners if the city had an ordinance against portable signs, such as the hundreds of political signs currently crowding right-of-ways throughout the county.
Pomeroy told Richeson that, yes, the city did have an ordinance against signs on city property.
“It’s just not enforced?” Richeson asked.
“It’s not enforced,” Pomeroy replied, explaining that the removal of such signs right now could be a full-time job for a city employee.
“I think they’re a traffic hazard,” Richeson, who also wrote a recent letter to the editor on the matter, said.  The signs are “especially dangerous” at intersections where they often block the view, he said.
