Council OKs $477 Fee for Billboards

April 13, 2002

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday agreed to establish an annual billboard fee to pay for the inventory and inspection of signs in the city.

The fee--set at $477 per sign--will cover the costs of creating a citywide list of billboards in an effort to identify illegal signs. Under the plan approved by the council, sign owners will be required to affix a certificate to each billboard.

"The first phase of this four-year program will immediately improve our ability to enforce the law and crack down on illegal billboards," said Councilman Jack Weiss, who pushed for the fee.
