A test for Council?

The Beagle Editor,

Do I remember Council warning candidates in the recent Council elections not to put up How-to-Vote signs along our roads, at risk of, was it $1000 fines? But here, along one of our major roads, George Bass Drive in Lilli Pilli, we see blatant abuse of that ruling.

Does Council's rulings not have power over State and Federal candidates? Or was Council overreaching in applying the original ban? Can the Beagle sniff out an explanation for this seeming anomaly?

Feel free to send any photos you have of signs that are contrary to the candidate rules to Council.
