City citations for violations of sign laws a 'slow' process

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 25, 2013

~~<p><strong>Question</strong>: Recently, we have seen many new storm chasers pop up in Kailua due to last year's hail damage. Now Kailua, Kaneohe and Waimanalo are seeing contractor signs all over town. I believe the sign ordinance is for contractor signs to be placed directly in front of job sites &mdash; not on public roadways, easements and public property. Is there anyone we can call to have the offending signs removed or the company fined for abusing the sign laws?</p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: The Outdoor Circle agrees with your observation about the number of signs, but the city Department of Planning and Permitting says it has not noticed an increase in illegal activity on the Windward side.</p>
