Two Florida Cities Fight Illegal Signage With Robocalling

Businesses that do call to stop the robocalling pay $75 for the first penalty, $150 for the second and $250 for the third time. The mayor said companies from as far as Ohio have called the city to stop the robocalling.

Bober said it was "great" that Oakland Park is copying Hollywood's program. He said he's fielded calls from towns all over the U.S. and Canada.

"I'm glad other cities are following suit as a lot of other cities are seeing the same budgetary issues like we are and we have better ways to spend employees' time," he said. "I'm glad it's catching fire."

When asked whether consumers who receive robocalls could simulate the city's program, he said the thought has occurred to him when he receives spam text messages on his cell phone.

"I'm sure there are other applications if we all put our heads together like this," he said.
