LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Political signs have been popping up in Lafayette more and more in recent weeks for the upcoming fall elections: all of them in violation of the city’s sign regulations.

The Advocate reportsa little-known section of the city’s code prohibits political yard signs on public property and allows the signs on private property only within the three months of balloting.

Lafayette City-Parish Director of Planning, Zoning and Development Eleanor Bouy, says she and her staff began noticing the first political signs just after Easter and have watched the number grow.

Bouy said no decision will be made on enforcement actions until the candidates have time to comply after being given notice of the city’s regulations.
