MESQUITE -- Maybe it’s a sign of the times. Signs on just about every surface you can imagine. Nailed and stapled to utility poles. Yard sale signs at multiple corners. Lose weight signs in the street medians. Well the city of Mesquite and various others across the nation are “Sick of Signs”. At least that’s what they call an annual campaign by AACE (American association of Code Enforcement), to clear the clutter and create awareness for the public nuisance.
