Illegal Real Estate Signs

This is an example of a neighboring village handling a common problem. In Lombard, they have a parttime employee who enforces the sign ordinances. If a sign is illegally posted, he collects them, logs the offender on a notepad, and throws the signs in a dumpster. The village then fines the offenders.
Why don't we do this in Elmhurst?
Have you ever attended an Elmhurst City Council meeting? Have you seen the length of time it takes to pass an ordinance? Why, then does the City not enforce the ordinances that have been painstakingly debated and passed into law?
(l) Real Estate Signs.
Such signs shall be limited to one single or doublefaced, nonilluminated sign of the following maximum gross surface areas:
a. Single family residential, individual lots:
No more than six square feet per sign face.

c. Other districts: No more than 16 square feet.
Such sign must be located entirely within the property to which the sign applies.
The sign must be removed 3 days prior to issuance of Certificate of Occupancy or Certificate of Zoning Compliance, or, provided that such Certificates are not necessary, such signs shall be removed upon occupation of the premises to which the sign applies. No more than one such sign is permitted per lot, except corner lots may have one per street frontage.
No such sign shall be higher than four feet above grade nor closer to any lot line than six feet.
