Anti-SAFE Act, anti-Cuomo signs can stay in Niagara Falls

Two anti-SAFE Act, anti-Cuomo signs in Niagara Falls - just like the one that was at the center of controversy in Hamburg - will not be forced to come down.

The large signs, which read "NY IS NOT S.A.F.E.!! STOP CUOMO - PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS!!," have been hanging on properties on 79th Street near the LaSalle Expressway and on the 400 block of Hyde Park Boulevard.

Dennis Virtuoso, the city's director of code enforcement, said today he has consulted with the city's Law Department and the city has no law that these signs violate.

"According to our ordinances , it's allowable," Virtuoso said, adding that it is "a matter of free speech."

The Town of Hamburg has a specific law that prohibited certain signs on fences.
