AURORA — The city has extended the deadline for residents to comply with the holiday decoration ordinance.
The ordinance requires residents not to display outdoor holiday decorations more than 60 days before or 60 days after a holiday, which would have been Feb. 25 for Christmas decorations. The new deadline has been set for March 18, the city said Tuesday.
When city property inspectors spot homes in violation of the ordinance, the property owner typically is given a courtesy notice advising of the violation and directing them to be in compliance within 14 days or face a $50 fine.
After receiving the courtesy notice, the vast majority of the decorations are taken down, officials said.
