ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany code enforcers want to make sure business owners know what is and isn't legal at their businesses.

Thursday a mobile home salesman complained to us after code enforcers made him take down this inflatable advertisement.

A representative from the city attorney's office told us a business owner can pay for a permit to use a sky dancer like this, but Chief Code Enforcement Officer Robert Carter says that's not true.

"That type of sign structure is a prohibited sign," said Carter. "The temporary permits that were mentioned are for custom flags and banners. This is not one of those."

That business owner told us the city fined him $250.00, but Carter said the city did not fine him since he took the floating man down.
