Election season is right around the corner, and citizens can expect to see a plethora of campaign signs popping up in their area. Before you plant, or pull up, a wiry cardboard ad in your neighborâ€™s front yard, government leaders are reminding citizens of proper election signage.
This year, some municipal races will have up to eight candidates running for two or three elected positions. With large races, municipal leaders say the importance of signage rules becomes even more significant as candidates vie for a spot on the lawn as well as their governmentâ€™s ruling body.
A plan to replace a 75-year-old water line in Maiden will affect traffic in coming months, but town officials say the impact will be as minimal as possible.
Maidenâ€™s Main Street Waterline Replacement Project will replace one of the oldest water lines in the town as well as relocate a new water line out of the road. Maiden Town Manager Todd Herms said the old water line has had several breaks over the past few years. Buildup inside the pipe has caused the problem, he said.
