Florida Businesses Fined for Putting Up Toys for Tots Signs

Code enforcement run amok


Deltona residents are calling on the community to fight back after businesses were fined by the city for putting up signs for Toys For Tots.

The Toys For Tots sign encourages people to drop off new toys at a Deltona pet grooming shop.

It helps spread the word to spread joy to less fortunate children during the holiday season.

The sign has caused nothing but trouble for the business owner.

"It's not bothering anybody. It's just sitting here letting you know there's a drop off spot of Christmas for kids," business owner Corey Marion said.

A Deltona code enforcement officer slapped Corey Marion with a $60 fine because she put the sign in front of Happy Tails.
