Are your signs out of place?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Code enforcement officers seize hundreds of out of place signs in Albany. Take a look. Over the past week, more than 300 signs that were on public rights of way were picked up by Code Enforcement officers.

It's part of a continuing effort to get rid of blight in the city. Director Mike Tilson said, "Signs add blight. It's visual blight. We all want to Albany to look good. We want Albany to be a place where people want to move to, to work in and signs, although it's a minor little thing, it is part of blight."

A good rule of thumb is never place a sign between the curb and utility pole, or in a median. If one of your signs was picked up, you can get it back within the next two weeks by calling code enforcement at 438-3913. After that, they'll be destroyed.
