The signs are everywhere. Mostly red, white, blue, -- although I’ve seen some in bright green and yellow – plastic and cardboard, small, medium and large, some very large; on main roads and side streets, on public land and private, in driveways.
According to Town Clerk Lisa Terry, the Town of Montville doesn’t have an ordinance that regulates how long after an election or political event the signs must be removed. And there is no town charter language on the matter and no zoning regulation either.
