Commission Passes Resolution Against Campaigning On County Services Drive

The Putnam County Commission approved a resolution that restricts campaigning on County Services Drive and the property off Willow Avenue.

Attorney Jeff Jones said the action is allowed since the county owns the road but is not listed as a county road. The Election Commission Office is also located on the property.

“Early voting, the amount of traffic that has happened over there has increased dramatically since 2012, and we’re concerned about the county liability,” Jones said. “But mainly, concerned about the safety.”

Jones said campaign signs will no longer be allowed on the county right-of-way by the road. With county commission approval, it will be in place for the November election.
