BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – Belleville has agreed to pay $30,000 to settle a lawsuit over political signs.

The Belleville News Democrat reports that the city will make the payment to business owner Dianne Rogge, who sued after she was ordered to remove a political sign.

She claimed in a federal lawsuit that the order violated her civil rights.

The settlement also requires the city to change its ordinances to exempt political signs from regulation, which it did last month.
