LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - If you wake up in Limestone County, and you see a purple potty in your yard or your neighbor's yard, don't be alarmed.

"The purple commode may land in your yard.  For ten dollars you can call the number on the side and have it removed. For twenty dollars you can have it removed and sent to someone else's yard. And for 30 dollars you can purchase insurance and have it removed to someone else's yard and it will not come back to yours," said Ina Holland.

“And the really cool part is someone put it the mayor's yard. Gotta love a purple potty for the "first citizen of Athens," said Holland.

"It's something the ladies at city hall have come up with making all of us aware it's a campaign gimmick so to speak.  To say 'hey, give, support us." and there is a lot of people that has already heard about this and I think they are nervous about their neighborhood the purple commode may show up," said Mayor Ronnie Marks.

So be warned, if you get up in Limestone County and you have a purple potty in your yards, you might want to get your checkbook.

The money raised goes to the American Cancer Society.

The Relay for Life event is May 3rd at the Athens Sportplex beginning at 7 p.m.
