LA CROSSE, Wis. -

The political ads are gone, and soon the yard signs will be going away as well.

Residents have a week after the election is over to remove the political yard signs.

If they are not removed by next week, the city will remove them for you, but they will charge you a fee.

It will cost you a $75 administration fee plus an extra cost for time and labor.

The city inspector says they usually don't have too many problems with signs being left up too long.
