The city hasn't used the system yet, saying there's been a lull in signs since tax season ended.
"You've been a nuisance to us now we're going to be a nuisance to you, turn the tables on them," said Quier. "We hate to be that way."
Just south of Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale officials are also struggling with signs that littered a busy intersection this week advertising child support reductions and credit repairs, including a sign from Caravan Credit Services.
But company officials said they didn't order the sign spam.
"It must have been an old sign. We stopped doing that," said Ross Linthicum, executive vice president of the Houston-based company. "A couple of salesmen took it upon themselves to do that. ... You do get people that still go out there and do it, but it's in our paperwork not to do it."
