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 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.
