To any and all interested... here's what the Louisville Metro Regulation states regarding the posting of street spam..... and the penalties....
GENERAL PROVISIONS § 112.01 POSTING HANDBILLS OR SIGNS ON PUBLIC PROPERTY PROHIBITED. No person shall paint, mark or write on, or post or otherwise affix any handbill or sign in a public right-of-way, or to or upon any public sidewalk, crosswalk, curb, curbstone, street lamp post, hydrant, tree, shrub, tree stake or guard, railroad trestle, electric light or power or telephone pole, or wire appurtenance thereof, or upon any fixture of the fire alarm system, or upon any lighting system, public bridge, street sign, traffic sign, or other official sign of governmental or safety purpose. PERSON may extend, and be applied to, bodies politic, corporations and corporate societies, communities, the public generally, individuals, partnerships and joint stock companies. (1994 Jeff. Code, § 112.01) (Jeff. Ord. 1-1986, adopted and effective 2-25-1986; Lou. Metro Am. Ord. No. 166-2004, approved 10-28-2004) Penalty, see § 112.99
§ 112.99 PENALTY. (A) Any person who violates any provision of this chapter for which no other specific penalty is provided shall be subject to the provisions of § 10.99. (B) Any person found guilty of violating § 112.01 of this chapter shall be fined not less than $10 nor more than $50 per violation, and also shall be liable for any cost incurred by the Metro Government or any agency thereof as a result of such violation. But in no event shall such cost exceed $100 per violation. (1994 Jeff. Code, § 112.99) (Jeff. Ord. 1-1986, adopted and effective 2-25-1986)
Since you seem to be able to "police" the southwest part of the city, may I suggest that you also look for "regular" signs that are illegal? For example, there is a developer's sign that must measure 8' tall and 10' wide at the NW corner of Moorman Rd. and Dixie Hwy, where the Snyder Freeway intersects, and it's 100% in the Snyder freeway ROW (right-of-way).
Also, virtually ALL banner signs attached to buildings violate the LDC : Land Development Code. (see link below)

Thanks for the info. We are doing what we can. Also thanks for clueing me in on another offender, as there are other signs that we have targeted to complain about. Hopefully the city will follow up on our complaints as these signs are actually too large for us to remove.
