Guam - With the primary election drawing close, you can already see some of the political signs going up. Department of Public Works director Carl Dominguez says candidates are allowed to put up signs in the government's right of way 90 days prior to the primary election which started on June 1.

"And there's some rules for the candidates to follow for example the sign can't be any closer than eight feet of the edge of the roadway for safety reasons, and they can't be within 100 feet of any intersection and there's also a limit to the size of the sign, I'm only restricting to the signs in our rights of ways, it can't be more than 32 square feet which is the typical size of a sheet of plywood, a 4 by 8," he said.

He adds there is a $100 nonrefundable application fee and a $200 security deposit. Signs must be removed 15 calendar days after the general election or candidates risk losing their deposit. You can call the highway encroachment permit section at 646-3114 for more information.
