    While not that complicated, those wishing to place new signage in the city of Hillview will need to make sure all the permits and applications are secured.

    Or you could face a fine.

    The Hillview City Council voted 6-0 to approve the revised ordinance.

    For those running for elected office, it will mean you have a few more days to post your signs.
