Highlights of what is going to be covered (big list online, this is just what caught my eye):
Sign Ordinance Change Proposed

A proposal for an amendment to the City's Municipal Code, Chapter 99: "Streets and Sidewalks; Trees and Shurbs" that governs placing signs on public land.

The amendment now defines Public Land and gives a broad group of city employees the charge to take down signs, posters, and notices that are illegally placed on public land. Penalties under the amendment allow for citations to be issued through the mail to any offender of the ordinance by the Right-of-Way Department. Fines range from $50 for the first offense; $100 for the second offense; and $250 for the third and subsequent offenses.

I will. Thank you!

I wasn't able to make the meeting, but Jeff Pruitt I believe has some notes about it on his blog.

I saw one of the designations didn't go thru? Anyone know why?

The only thing I can think of that was voted down was the rezoning for the Family Dollar Store. It's in councilman Hines' district and he said the neighborhoods around there were against it and he didn't think that was the best place for it...
