So what if the election in Bayonne is over? Maybe some residents still want to let the world know who they support for mayor---even well in to 2009.
Maybe it’s part of their Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa decorations.
But according to Bayonne City Public Works Director Gary Chmielewski, no can do. Apparently there is a city zoning code that mandates that all election signs must be removed from residential, commercial and industrial properties within two weeks after an election. City Zoning Officer John Zgola said, he'll be "riding around" looking for sign-breakers. And impose a $1250 fine if they don’t comply.
Didn’t the ACLU already deal with these issues for towns in New Jersey?
