If you want to put up a temporary sign in Fergus Falls, you’ll likely need a permit and have to follow some other guidelines.

The City Council approved a motion to direct the city attorney to draft an ordinance addressing temporary signs, based on suggestions made by the task force at its Monday meeting.

Temporary signs, as defined, identify a special, unique or limited activity, service, product or sale of a limited duration.

They are not affixed to a permanent structure and are removed immediately after the event.

An annual temporary sign permit (per sign) of $50 will be required by the sign owner.

Signs can be up for no more than 30 days and need to be removed within three days of the end of the activity, service, project or sale.
