does it look like the city put it up or did some other organization stick their banner on the sign knowing that it would be a great place to put it visibility-wise?
i think it's worth calling someone to convey your displeasure. if the banner is just stuck up there then it may be as simple as they don't know about it and once you tell them they would normally, i would think, have someone go out and remove the banner. but if it was put up by the city it'll take a good deal to get it removed i would think. and that's unlikely to happen before easter next sunday.
thx, who should I call you think? It is 11:31 AM here so I have time to go inform this. Is Easter this Sunday?
What agency I mean?? City council??
next sunday is easter i think.
i'd go on to your city's website and look around the different government agencies and see if one of them makes sense to you when it comes to this kind of thing. it may not be very clear and in that case i'd call several, bearing in mind that you're only likely to be able to leave a message on a saturday
i wouldn't take it down yourself. if the city has sanctioned it (and even if they haven't) you may be putting yourself at risk for charges of vandalism or destruction of property. :(
