Giant Miami Mayoral Signs Out Of City Code
Published July 7th, 2013
MIAMI (AP) - Miami's mayoral candidates are attracting attention, and not for their campaign platforms.
Both current Mayor Tomas Regalado and Commissioner Francis Suarez have been using giant campaign signs that are too big for city code.
El Nuevo Herald (http://hrld.us/12iJ4CD ) reports the city's code compliance inspectors haven't lifted a finger to take down the huge, smiling portraits of the candidates, or fine the elected officials who break the rules either.
Political signs in residential zones can't exceed four square feet in surface area, but the paper found a Suarez sign measuring more than 55 square feet.
Regalado recognized some of his signs were out of compliance and promised to take them down. Suarez did not return several phone messages.
