Policy still not drafted for temporary signs in Fergus Falls

Published 10:56am Wednesday, December 19, 2012

The Fergus Falls Planning Commission has had a tough time coming up with a temporary business sign policy that is simple enough to be easily understood by the public, yet detailed enough to cover recurring issues.

The Fergus Falls City Council approved the commission’s request to extend the temporary sign enforcement memorandum until Jan. 22.

Chamber of Commerce ambassador Mary Widiger presented two requests to the commission on behalf of the chamber.

She recommended the license be given to the sign owner rather than the business. The other recommendation was that signs should be limited to 30-day periods, eight times per year.

It was requested at the council meeting that Widiger work with the Planning Commission in drafting a policy.
