Election signage to be removed by rangers

The build up in road sign campaign posters has seen the community protest to the Eurobodalla Council asking why they don't act. Initial phone calls to the Australian Electoral office by members of the public revealed that they were not the authority to remove the trees and to contact Council. The General Manager has now, through delegation, responded to enquiries relating to election material saying "Council wrote to all candidates on 28 April 2022, explaining the reasons why electoral signage could not be placed on Council land. The letter also stated that if electoral signage was erected prior to the letter could the signs be removed. "Council staff removed the majority of electoral signage across the Shire on Wednesday 11 May 2022 with the remaining signage to be removed by Monday 16 May 2022. Rangers will remove any electoral signage they see whilst conducting their normal duties or from any complaints they receive. Political parties can phone Council to arrange collection of electoral signage". To help Council rangers in their quest for corflutes nailed to trees ring 44741000 Alternatively you could load the SNAP, SEND, SOLVE App to your phone and lodge your sign complaint that way such as was done with this one in Malua Bay.
