COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - The primary elections are over, now those candidate signs lining Collier County streets must come down, otherwise expect to pay a hefty fine.
This does not apply to candidates moving on to the November election.
That means the signs must be down by August 31st.
Keeping a sign out until November could cost you as much as $105 a day per sign, whether it's commercial or private property.
Many think the county code should be tweaked for November candidates, but code enforcement says they normally give warnings before issuing any fines. The county is aware that many may not know the code when it comes to candidate signs.
Property owners aren't the only ones who receive the fines, the candidate will also get a fine for signs not taken down.
