Billboards Violate Ozark Sign Ordinance

As of January 1st billboards in Ozark are violating the city's 2003 sign ordinance.

They were given until this month to comply by being built of metal only, under 400 square feet and between 25 and 50 feet off the ground only in the B4 zone.

The city council is now proposing to extend the compliance date to March 1st, 2012.

They'll hold a public hearing a vote on February 15th.

We talked to Ozark building official Jonathon Cordell to see what sign owners should do.

“You need to contact us at the Inspection Department so that we can help you figure out what your next step is,” says Cordell.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH SMALL GOVERNMENT IN THE SOUTH!. THEY PREFER TO WORRY MUCH ABOUT BUSINESS SIGNS LOCATED ON THE SIDE OF PUBLIC ROADS RATHER THAN HELP ATTRACT MORE CUSTOMERS TO HELP IN THEIR MUCH NEEDED ECONOMY. I BELIEVE AS LONG THEY DO NOT SHOW ANY UNFAVORABLE CONDITIONS THEY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED OK. OR ARE THEY JUST TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY BY ISSUEING ORDENANCE FINES TO THESE BUSINESSES THAT KEEP THEM(CITY GURUS) EMPLOYED BY PROVIDING REVENUE TAXES TO THESE SMALL GOVERNMENTS. CAN THEY UTILIZE THEIR TIME IN A MORE PRODUCTIVE WAY OR THEY JUST NEED ATTENTION?
