    Anyone notice the giant realtor and rental agency signs starting to pop up along 30A neighborhoods? I'm sure you have becasue you can't miss them. Billboard is a bit of an exaggeration but they might as well be in our charming village of SoWal.

    Hard to believe a Walco sign ordinance allows giant signs on individual properties. They look like the same large size as allowed for a business. Can we all agree that one traditional size yard sign is enough? I have no doubt if rules aren't changed (or existing limits enforced if there are any) then every house for sale or rent will have giant signs before you know it.

    30A Escapes and Linda Miller come to mind but there are others. If it is technically legal then to you and anyone else putting up giant gaudy signs ruining our community I say: just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    I saw these signs yesterday and they have grown much larger than previous years. Just tacky.

    Pretty soon we'll have inflatable gorillas and other blow up monstrosities calling attention to everyone's beach front homes they are now selling due to Customary Use.

    Beachy Beach and Hillary Farnum seem to have started this trend of massive signage to either exploit the local rules or see how far they can push things. They will continue to grow larger and multiply until someone shuts them down. I thought there was a sign ordinance that dictated the size and nature of the signage.

    I'm sure there is a Sign Ordinance, but as usual, no Enforcement.

    So, here's my solution:

    The County needs to hire, full-time, the volunteer Citizens Services Woman, Leah (not sure how to spell her name).

    She is the best thing going as you always see her out WORKING, and she's a volunteer at that.

    I see her moving the tourists that like to park in the Public's Fire Lane, I see her getting on to the entitled construction workers that block the intersection at Dune Allen and 30A and park in front of the fire plug. She is always out directing traffic at a crash scene while others stand around.

    If she had Code Enforcement Authority, we'd have a much better SoWal!!!

    You are so right! If only we could clone her!

    We can't clone her but we can put positive pressure on the powers that be to finally actually hire and promote a competent employee (her) to a position that they are more than qualified for and capable of performing, that would do us all a lot of good (which is probably why we won't see this happen).

    What is her full name, does anyone know? She deserves a medal.

    She should run Code Enforcement.
