Call the county when you see nuisance signs cluttering our streets [Letter]

We live in a lovely area with nice homes, so why are our thoroughfares so cluttered with illegal signage? Many businesses in Towson, along York Road and Joppa Road, post plastic signs, flashing signs, vertical flags, banners, pennants, etc., for which they do not have permits. Unfortunately, a citizen complaint must be filed for each violation. Citizens can call the county at 410-887-8099 for these unattractive nuisances, but I wish that these businesses could be cited without having to call the county about each one. In the meantime, when you see an attractive business with a well-kept exterior, be sure to tell the owner that you appreciate it!
