WARNER ROBINS -- Better get those election, contractor and yard sale signs out of the public right of way.
Houston County Sheriffs Office deputies are expected to start yanking them up Monday, and violators can face a citation and a potential fine.
For the past 10 days, personnel from the sheriffs office have been contacting sign owners with a warning to start taking them down, said Houston County sheriffs Capt. Alan Everidge.
The sheriffs office issued a news release Friday afternoon announcing the enforcement action.
The county ordinance impacts unincorporated areas of the county only, Everidge said.
The ordinance does not specify a dollar amount for the misdemeanor offense, Everidge said, but misdemeanors carry up to a $1,000 fine.
Weve been getting complaints long before the election came around, Everidge said.
The primary is July 31.
