Here is the AUDIO for the old business portion of tonights VB meeting. Even though the sign request from Rick Thomson's Downtown 11 was denied at a previous meeting, he submitted another request.
Requests for new signs must be applied for and approved by the VB BEFORE the sign is installed. There is a penalty for not following the ordinance [see pic. above]
Old signs can be replaced with new ones if the new sign is the same size as the old one [or smaller]. If the sign is the same size then no request needs to be submitted to the vb. Village ordinance does not allow back lighted signs.
Sandwich Boards 08min:46sec:
These are signs, no matter how you look at them. Guess what? The same sign ordinance [as described above] applies to these sandwich boards. There has been no request for permits for any of the sandwich board signs in the village.........they just appear.
