New sign task force takes fresh look at ordinance

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new sign ordinance task force met for the first time Thursday at the request of the Albany City Commission to take a fresh look at the ordinance that regulates sign age.

City leaders want input on what business leaders and others in the community think is and is not working and whether any changes are needed.

"We're trying to look at what we have in the ordinance now, new technology, and how we can anticipate what people want in the signs for the future," said Paul Forgey, Director of Planning

The task force will meet again in April. They plan to have a section on the city government's web site soon where you can weigh in on the issue.
