Over the last two weeks, more than 80 illegal signs were collected by Code Enforcement officers around the city and most were from the 78405, 78415 and 78410 zip codes.
The seized signs advertised garage sales, offers of low cost utilities and lost pets. Combining the last two weeks, 85 illegal signs were removed, 45 citations were handed out and 12 warnings were given.
Every Monday, officers scour their assigned areas looking for illegally placed signs, signs on utility poles, and in the right of ways. Since the program began last September, Code Enforcement officers have removed 2,154 illegal signs, issued 754 citations and given 250 warnings.
