MACo Supports Removal of Signs Improperly Placed in Rights-of-Way

MACo Associate Director Andrea Mansfield and Candace Donoho, Director of Government Relations for the Maryland Municipal League testified in support of SB 410 before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.  This bill would authorize the removal of improperly placed signs on highway rights-of-ways by state or local authorities, and authorize a civil action to recover costs of their removal or disposal.  Additionally, the proposed legislation would provide sensible authority to the overseers of highway rights-of-ways, to provide clear allowance for these necessary cleanup actions. Such improvement 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.
