County Targets Sign Pollution

Illegal roadside signs carry a $500 per violation fine.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz held a news conference Wednesday to highlight existing laws aimed at reducing signage illegally placed along roads.

"Our Code Enforcement Bureau responds to complaints by removing signs and works with businesses posting signs illegally to advise them of the law and bring them into compliance," Kamenetz said in a statement released Wednesday.

Kamenetz, in his statement, called illegally placed signs an "unfair business practice that puts law-abiding businesses at a competitive disadvantage."

Repeat violations can result in a fine of $500 per violation.

Residents can report signs they believe are illegally placed by calling 410-887-3351 or on the Baltimore County government website.
