ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany businessman says he'll go to court to keep three white crosses on top of his building in downtown Albany after city officials cited him for not removing them.
These are the 15-foot tall crosses on top of the Exchange Building at 102 North Washington Street.
Owner Peter Studl had them put up ten days before Christmas.
December 26th city officials ordered him to remove them. They say the crosses don't meet the sign ordinance or building code, and they were afraid they would blow off and injure someone.
Monday he was cited for not removing the crosses.
Studl says they are not signs, and he'll argue it in court.
Building owner Peter Studl said "This isn't an issue for only Magistrate Court. These issues often end up being decided in U.S. Supreme Court. So I expect to have a lot of court dates." You feel that strongly about it? Studl said "I feel totally strong about it."
Studl says he put up the crosses because Albany could use more prayer and faith and because he's renaming the building the City of Prayer Center.
He claims several faith-oriented entities will rent space inside.
