Glasgow City Council Members discuss signs

GLASGOW — The presence of signs around Glasgow led to a lengthy discussion about enforcing existing policies about the signs at the Glasgow City Council’s regular meeting on Monday night. This year’s election brought questions about how to qualify those signs in the rules.

The council approved on first reading amending an ordinance in the Glasgow City Code of Ordinances relating to the placement of signs, including directional signs, outdoor advertising displays and special event signs.

The changes were needed because the city’s existing ordinances “do not sufficiently address the matter,” according to the ordinance read by City Attorney Ben Rogers on Monday night.

Signs located on private property will not be affected by the ordinances, but “off-premises signs” will have certain restrictions.

Signs advertising scheduled special events are allowed up for 20 days, including the three-day removal period after the event, a change from the 30 days allowed previously in the ordinance.

The special events designation does not include political signs, an amendment that was made at the meeting by councilwoman Linda Wells.
