A Moline alderman told KWQC Monday that with the new year will come a new push to beautify the city and clean up blight.

Alderman Lori Turner said Moline city staff will be proactively working to clean up old signs from businesses that no longer exist and old sign posts in disrepair.

The push directs city staff to enforce a rule that's already on the city's books – stating businesses have about a year and a half to remove signage after closing their doors.

Turner said she got the idea for the reinforcement effort after a council community walk, where she noticed many old sign posts and banners.

Up until now, the city's property management coordinator said the city had been working on a complaint-only basis with the old signage, so having some political backing from city council to work on it is helpful.

"It can give a better appearance and impression - not only to the business who have the blight and the obsolete signs and such on their property, but it will also reflect well on the city that we are trying to be a progressive moving-forward city," said Ald. Lori Turner.

Turner said the city will start sending letters out to violators after the first of the year.
