MACo Supports Bill to Authorize Removal of Signs From Highway Rights-of-Way

MACo Associate Director Andrea Mansfield testified in support of HB 289 on Tuesday, February 15.  HB 289 would authorize removal of improperly placed signs on highway rights-of-way by state or local authorities, and authorize a civil action to recover costs of their removal or disposal.  Additionally, the legislation would provide sensible authority to the overseers of highway right-of-ways, to provide clear allowance for these necessary cleanup actions.  MACo urged the a favorable report from the  House Environmental Matters Committee on HB 289 as it will help clean up the appearance of public roadways by clarifying accountability for the person or company improperly placing signs, and for the governmental entity that enforces the provisions.
