WHERE: Various rights of way alongside roads throughout Augusta

WHAT: Signs advertising Graduation Achievement Centers of Georgia, a tuition-free, online charter school, have cropped up across town. The school opened a center in Augusta in July.

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Code enforcement manager Pam Costabile said the signs violate the city’s code. Violators that are local can be required to sign a notice and, if they continue to violate the code, can be taken to court.

ACTION PROMISED: Costabile said she notified her staff to look for the signs and collect them between regular inspections.

I wish Columbia County would clean these type signs up as well. They are all over.
