Lyons public works crews 'keeping village tidy' by removing political signs
LYONS – A concerned resident reported seeing crews for the village of Lyons Public Works Department clearing political signs from the lawns of residents following the April 9 election, but village officials said there was nothing nefarious about it.
"Absolutely they were [picking up the signs]," said Thomas Sheahan, village manager. "After every election ... we pick these up and take them over to public works."
Sheahan said the removal of the signs is not politically motivated and that public works crews are told to collect all signs, not only those for a single candidate. The resident who contacted Suburban Life voiced a concern that only signs for the United Citizens Party were being picked up. The resident asked not to be identified.
