I had the same thing happen to me about 2-3 months ago. I had a realtor call me up to tell me how my signs were illegal and that he was going to have the Board of Realtors arrest me. Needless to say, I am still here.
Next time this happens, tell the guy you are sorry. Then ask him where the sign or signs were. Then tell him you will have the company that put them up take them down. Then go out and take the sign that he complained about down. Move it to another location. Make the guy think he has won.
Also, You may want to look into putting your signs on stakes and just driving them into the ground. That may solve your problem. I do not know. As for being fined, I am sure that what will happen is that the city or county will send you a letter or give you a call asking you to take the signs down. Then if you do not comply, they fine you.
I have been working on a solution for this problem and I have come up with a number of ideas and would like your opinions:
If the heat gets too hot, just take signs down and put up new ones with a different number. Just get a new cell phone number.
Get a pay as you go phone, just for the signs. That way the city has no way of knowing who they can fine. Because the phone can be in a made up name.
Get a voice mail number and use that. Once again, use a fake name and address and pay with cash or money order.
Let me know what holes are in my ideas. I know that cost may come into play, but besides that what do you all think?
