Signs Hanging on Park Fence Under Scrutiny
September 27, 2012
Signs hanging on park fence in Macomb are stirring up controversy among some residents.
The city of Macomb has received numerous complaints from residents saying they are unattractive, distracting and blocking the beauty of the park.
This week, Mayor Mike Inman said that he would no longer allow signs to be put up along the fence.
A formal vote will be made next Monday at the Committee of the Whole Meeting. Aside from blocking scenery, city officials are also worried about the banners ruining the finish of the fence.
