Peru alderman questions the value of their sign ordinance

Posted by wlpo on April 4, 2013

          You can barely drive a block without seeing a sign for a political candidate or referendum.  The City of Peru created tougher signage rules last spring limiting the number of political signs you can stick in your yard. 

          More than a few people have complained that the signage rules aren’t being fairly enforced. 

          Alderman Rodney Perez told the city council and mayor Wednesday night that the new rules are causing a lot of grief and asked that they go back to the old rules.

          Mayor Scott Harl has signs posted as he runs for a second term.  He says they only have problems for two weeks during the election season so they don’t need to change the rules.  A couple of other aldermen agreed.

          Harl faces challengers Mike Hart, former mayor Don Baker and Jim Giordano.
