Several readers have emailed me asking about political signs after my column yesterday.
The Shreveport Unified Development Code regulates political yard signs.
If these are posted on vacant, undeveloped land, then there is hoop to jump through.
A written consent to the placement of the sign must be filed with the Shreveport Department of Public Works.
Gary Norman, Public Works director advises that NO permission forms have been filed with his office.
This writer is not a political sign policeman. But I do ride the streets in my district.
Several signs of Chris David are on vacant, undeveloped lots.
So it appears—and the operative word is "appear"–that David is not in compliance with the Shreveport ordinance.
Political signs are also prohibited in the area between the street and the sidewalks. David has several signs in this area.
Political signs always catch my attention. There may be other violations by other candidates, but none have jumped out into my field of vision.
Generally I write one column identifying an issue and move on. However push back on the column published yesterday motivated me to write a followup.
Hopefully the is last column on this issue. I have other "fish to fry".
