Political Sign

Political Signs

Whitehall Township’s ordinance states that political signs must not exceed 32 square feet, with a max height of 8 feet.   They may be placed on private land only, and only with that land owner’s explicit permission.  Signs should be on the property enough that they are not too close to the road, the ordinance states a minimum of 5 feet from any property line.  Campaign signs should never be placed on public land.  Any sign that is improperly placed will be removed and disposed of.  All signs must be removed within 7 days after an election.  The township ordinance does not state when signs can begin going up, however no more than 45 days before an election is recommended.


As spring is approaching, many are asking if they can burn brush. This is actually controlled by the MI DNR. Below is the link to check if you are “allowed” to burn. The color must be green for Muskegon County, if it is you can burn in Whitehall Township. If it is orange for Muskegon County, click on the Muskegon County and it will give you details for our Township and the other municipalities within the County. Please stay safe and follow the requirements from the State. Remember you can NEVER burn trash, leaves, grass clippings, or processed lumber in Whitehall Township.
