    What is Sign Sweepers?  When you drive around Columbia you might notice signs that are placed in the median, taped to a utility pole or stop sign informing you about an upcoming sale or event.  Did you know these signs are unlawful and can be removed?
     
    A new volunteer program called Sign Sweepers has been started to proactively address the these illegal signs.   Volunteers are asked to spend a few hours each month removing unlawful signs from the city’s right-of-way.  All signs collected are placed behind City Hall.
     

    How can I get involved?  Sign Sweeper volunteers help keep our City looking great by removing illegal signs from the public right of way.  This is an easy way for residents to share their time to improve the appearance of Columbia!  To get involved, complete and return the information below to Volunteer Programs. All Sign Sweeper volunteers must participate in training. Training takes approximately one hour and will be scheduled with staff.
