Fairfax County Tries to Crack Down on Illegal Campaign Signs

View Comments ()



    Fairfax County is one step closer to eliminating illegal campaign signs that have cluttered medians and public driveways in the past.

    There will be a public hearing next month to discuss a proposal to allow the county to clean up the signs.

    Previously, Fairfax County had been barred from removing signs on state-controlled roads.

    The proposal would also allow the county to fine offenders on behalf of VDOT.

    A final vote on the measure won't come until later this year.
