ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After much controversy, Albany city leaders hope they'll soon put the heated debate over signs to rest.

The city set up a sign ordinance task force to take a look at the rules and regulations and come up with suggestions on how to improve them. Many business owners have complained and called the ordinance unfair and unfriendly to businesses.

"I feel good about the final outcome. I'm sure that they'll come up with some comprimises and resolutions to this matter and we'll have the best of both worlds. We'll have a pretty Albany and businesses will be able to compete for business as much as they need to," said Albany city commissioner Roger Marietta.

The task force is made up of city leaders and small business owners. The first of three meetings will be held next Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Government Center. The public is encouraged to attend.
