Rochester Selectmen order signs removed

Sep 3, 2019

ROCHESTER — Selectmen will have the building inspector “make a collection” of signs on public property.

The issue came up when Selectmen approved the  Annual Buzzards Bay Watershed Race for Oct. 6 at a Sept. 3 meeting.

Selectman Woody Hartley noted that the race requested to put signs up two weeks ago, but put the signs up before the selectmen’s approval. “They should have asked us for permission before they did what they did,” Hartley said.

He also noted that places around town “suddenly have a lot of other signs up on public lands,”  including signs for commercial businesses.

Hartley proposed that “maybe our building inspector can make a collection.”  The other selectmen agreed.
