After months of discussion on revisions to the city's sign ordinance, Cartersville councilmen tonight are set to vote on a measure that would outlaw the flipping or twirling of signs.
The city and local business The Sign Flipper had been at odds for some time following concerns that "sign flippers" distract drivers and could be a liability for property owners, The Daily Tribune News reported.
The proposed ordinance amendment also would prohibit advertisers from holding or displaying signs on public streets or rights-of-way. The size of signs held or worn in other areas would be limited to 10 square feet.
Are sign flippers a danger to motorists and others or a harmless art of advertising? Should the city prohibit or allow it? Tell us in the comments.
Council has a number of items on its agenda, including a rezoning request that would allow the expansion of the Kia dealership, a proposal to name Pettit Creek Trail the "J. Wayne Self Boardwalk," and several contracts and purchases. Find the full agenda packet attached.
