Public Works Reminds Candidates of Necessity of Campaign Advertising Permits

The organization’s poster campaign is giving students the chance to engage in the political discussion.

The Department of Public Works (DPW) reminds candidates that an advertising device permit is mandatory to place signs in public and private locations within 50 feet of the center line of any public roadway in the Virgin Islands.

Signs are only allowed in V.I. Department of Public Works designated locations, which are listed on the advertising device permit application or approved private locations. Advertisers interested in placing signs on private property must provide the department with written approval from the location’s owner.

The department will request that the applicant remove any signs found to be in non-compliance. If DPW is forced to remove the signs, it will cost $150 per sign.
