Lee County approves new sign ordinance

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email | twitter

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After months of debate and criticism from some business owners, Lee County commissioners finally approved a new sign ordinance Tuesday night.

They made some late changes including allowing businesses to fly three flags in a commercial zone.

Two can represent the state or a political subdivision. One can be a business flag.

Also, people advertising a sale or special event will have to pay a temporary sign fee of up to $10 and take down the signs three days after the event.

Commissioners say they listened to feedback from the public in crafting the rules.

The board also met with sign companies, businesses, and other members of the community before voting on the new ordinance.
