Sign Retrieval

I got a call this morning from the fire chief letting me know that my sign had been brought to the fire station, and that the Mayor had told him that the fence on which it (and the others) was mounted was city property, and thus forbidden for hanging signs.

After we collected my sign from the fire station and thanked them for holding it for me, Lisa and I drove down to the 76 station to talk to the owner. He had been surprised as anyone when all of the signs came down, as he thought the fence on which we posted the signs belonged to his gas station. He was even more surprised when I told him that there was still one sign posted, albeit not on the short fence.

Which Fence is Whose?

As you can see here, there's still one sign up, posted on the taller fence. I have a message in with the Public Works department of Fernley asking for clarification. If the tall fence belongs to the gas station, I can go back and post my sign there. If not, I'd like to know why they left anyone's sign hanging at all. Note that it has nothing to do with the candidate in question. I just want rules enforced equally. I'm not even upset that my sign was taken down, because they took all of the other ones on the short fence as well.

I obviously have no intention of violating any regulations about posting signs. I'm law-abiding, really! In the meantime, the owner of the drive-through espresso stand down the road says that it's okay for me to put one of my signs along her fence with the other ones that people have posted, as long as (of course) I don't block her shop's signs. We'll probably take a crack at that tomorrow.
