As campaign season gears up, City of Opelika officials would like to remind citizens, it is illegal to place signs in the right-of-way. The right-of-way is generally between the street and utility pole or water meter. Signs should be placed on the house side, away from the street, sidewalk, utility pole and water meter. Signs will be removed if they are placed in yards or on streets illegally. For more questions, please call the City of Opelika Code Compliance Office at 334-705-5161.
