    City will pay nonprofits up to $10,000 to take down bandit signs | Philly.com

    In an attempt to cleanse the city of ‘We Buy Houses,’ and other illegally posted signs, Philadelphia is launching a bounty program.

    It’s not exactly a new idea. Michael Froehlich, a West Philadelphia resident, has been paying neighbors $1 per sign, out of pocket, to pull down the plastered eyesores since October.

    The city will pay 40 nonprofit groups that sign up for the program 50 cents per sign, up to $250 per group. If every group hits its max, 20,000 signs would come down across the city.

    The bandit sign brigade’s take-down blitz will run June 1 through June 15.
