The Montgomery County Department of Permitting Services (DPS) will conduct a sign sweep on Aug. 4. DPS aims to remove illegally-placed signs throughout the county, including the signs that were placed before the July 19 election.
Sign sweeps will occur on county maintained roads and intersections with state highways.
“We will be removing any type of sign – not just campaign signs that are placed illegally in the public right of way,” said DPS Zoning and Code Compliance Manager Greg Nichols in the press release.
Residents can also report illegal signage by phone at 311 or online by visiting DPS website. Complaints can be submitted anonymously.
Reminder! Dept. of Permitting Services staff will conduct a “sign sweep” on Thursday, Aug. 4 to remove signs illegally placed in the public right-of-way along County-maintained roads.
