Sign of the times

It’s election time and political signs, like this one, are being put up to provide name recognition for candidates. The Dunkirk City Code places restrictions on where signs can be placed, including the city right-of-way on Park Avenue where this sign was seen Tuesday. According to the Code, “The violation of any of the provisions of this chapter shall be considered an offense, and any person, upon being convicted of such offense, shall be punishable by a fine of not more than Two Hundred Fifty Dollars ($250.00) or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding fifteen (15) days, or both.”
