posted at 7/7/2010 5:03 PM EDTThere are too many signs that are attached to metal poles that get implanted into the sidewalks. It' starting to look like NYC. Some corners have anywhere from 5 to 10 signs posted. And almost every corner has at least 3 to 5 signs posted. Go an entire block and at least 10 signs are posted. The signs take away the beauty of small towns. I love Salem but the signs are are giving it a trashy look.THERE ARE FAR TOO MANY SIGNS POSTED ON THE STREETS OF SALEM.I'm sure a lot of them could be removed without causing problems. Please Mayor Driscoll and city coucil members look into it. Thank you.
