Red Deer city council will hold off all election talk until 2016.

Coun. Lawrence Lee unsuccessfully argued to have his notice of motion limiting the number of election signs, and the timing and length of their placement, debated on Monday.

Council reasoned it is best to consider the sign issue in the overall context of the next municipal election report, expected to come a year before the 2017 municipal election.

Lee promised on the campaign trail to bring this issue to the table after hearing from the public about concerns of sign pollution, safety and visual blight.
