ALBANY, GA (WALB) - They listened to the concerns of Albany's business community, now a sign code task force will come up with recommended changes to the sign ordinance.

Thursday afternoon, the task force took public comments at its third and final public meeting.

Critics complain the ordinance is too strict and not business-friendly, the task force and business owners voted on key issues they'd like to see changed.

"The majority of the business owners that were here today I think they'll say we were very productive and that we took their concerns and we reduced it to writing and by doing that we've achieved a good product," said Howard W. Brown Jr., Sign Code Task Force Co-Chair.

The task force's recommendations will be presented to the city commission in late October.
