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.
