Responding to complaints about illegal temporary signs placed along roadways on weekends, Alpharetta Codes Enforcement officers will add Saturday and Sunday patrols beginning Aug. 25.
"We definitely are seeing a large number of illegal signs popping up around the city on Friday nights," Alpharetta spokesman James Drinkard said. "By Saturday morning at some of our key intersections they have spread like kudzu, and our residents are not happy about it."
Officers will remove illegal signs and issue warnings for the first couple of weekends, but they will begin issuing violations and bringing businesses before the Codes Enforcement Board in September.
