If this bill is allowed to pass which will amend 10-1200, our neighborhoods will be flooded with "bandit signs" which will create blight. These signs are put on utility poles, telephone poles and even trees; you know the ones advertising about junk cars, test streets, we buy your home to name a few.

These signs change a neighborhood by making it look trashy and dirty. We, the citizens of Philadelphia, do not need nor want our communities to turn into illegal billboards.

MAKE THE CITY ENFORCE THE LAW THAT MAKES THESE SIGNS ILLEGAL AND GO AFTER THE PERPETRATORS.

      These signs are blight. If you want to raise money, try enforcement and fines. But creating a new bureaucracy to collect $1 licenses is a level of stupid that even city council should be embarrassed about.

      Speaking of blight, before you increase our property taxes, collect unpaid amounts from out of town slumlords and deadbeats. It takes a minimal level of competence to auction tax delinquent properties. Every other jurisdiction in the country somehow manages to do.

      The only reason city council persons propose this is because they are the biggest offenders come election time. Curtis Jones is a proponent of this legislation and is my city councilman. Makes voting easier for me come election time.

      Enforcing the existing laws against this type of sign would go a long way toward making Philadelphia a more attractive city to live in.

      I take down signs when I can, if they're posted illegally. If I can do it, why can't the people for whom it is actually the job for which they get paid?

      C'mon, Philadelphia. Let's work together to make things better.

      Thosed signs are a blight and have no place in residential neighborhoods. Let the sign owners post them on their own property.

      Just enforce the current laws and we wouldn't have to write new ones.
